On the ground - In Nepal (Distribution at Bhaktapur) - 24 May 2015

Bhaktapur Durbar Square

Witnessing the destruction Mother Nature can do. Heartbreaking to see this world heritage premise reduced to rumble.

Visited the camp and donated 50 groundsheets and 33 mosquito nets.

Other NGOs have set up temporary homes and water filtration systems.

Holding the building with logs... Will it work?

Manually pulling down buildings by the Army.

Some buildings look strong. Nepalese continued to spend time at the Square.

Damaged

Strongest temple - survived many earthquakes in the Nepal history. We hope it will continue to stand strong and tall to witness time, culture and history of Nepal.

These streets are dangerous to walk through, building can crumble down ...

Hope the owner of the shoe is alright.
