I would like to thank everyone for your generosity supporting the various agencies and people of Nepal. Helping others creates a great kinship among us.
Rajan Sakya from the Kathmandu Guest House (my favourite place to stay when there) sent the following in an email to me:
`Having gone through this event, I suddenly realized what William Shakespeare meant, “ONE TOUCH OF NATURE MAKES THE WHOLE WORLD KIN”. For a couple of days as tremors came and went, all guests and staff gathered and slept in different areas of the KGH (Garden, Patio, Courtyard and Lobby), we instantly became a family comforting and cheering each other. Such bonds are enduring. Moreover, what is making us all proud is the indomitable spirit of all Nepalese uniting and helping each other. Our resilient attitude is giving each of us hope and strength to overcome this calamity and revive all that we have lost.`
I would like to extend a VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to the following people for contributing to help Bikesh and his Village of Nawalpur! Collectively we raised $2850CAD (over 240,000 Nepalse Rupees) which is the equivalent of over 5 months average salary in Nepal. Words cannot express how grateful both Bikesh & I are!

Updates from Bikesh
My village has new house May 7, 2015 – our second trip to Dhading to bring tarpaulins and medicines to Kaphalchhap village which has not received any help from VDC or any organisation like red cross and others yet. About 150 people were staying under the few shelters they managed to build for themselves (see some of the pictures).In the last picture we brought more tarpaulins to my own village because last time we could bring only for half of the families. I also promised to bring corrugated iron sheets to my village so that people can build better shelters for the monsoon time which will come soon. Later they can use them also for building their house.
Love the Canada T-shirt!
