Nepal Earthquake 2015 – Nepal, one of the places I was looking forward to experience some adventurous mountaineering and climbing. But, the unexpected earthquake changed my plans.
Without any hesitation, I teamed up with Smile 4 Hope organization and flew to Nepal. The plan was simple, scout the area in which S4H operates and put an action plan to help the local community.
I have captured few shots during my visit that do the situation no justice.
Gallery 1: The destruction
No, not a Hollywood movie. Hard to believe, but this is real.
Gallery 2: The melancholy
Sad faces everywhere!!
People who lost family members, friends, neighbors… countless of horror stories and tears shed in despair.
Gallery 3: The temp situation
Many people took shelter in open spaces regardless whether the houses were affected. The fear forced them to take the essentials and refuge to temporary shelters.
Gallery 4: One resilient nation
Despite everything, the urge of living and surviving kicked in. Many have refused to wait for help and started on their own.
Gallery 5: Humanity is not lost
One act of kindness a time, slowly restores humanity.
With mixed emotions I left Nepal… Reality is, Nepal is in need of help.
Anyone can make a difference.
Follow and support Smile 4 Hope with their immediate help and rebuilding efforts if you wish to contribute.
