As you all know by now the beautiful country of NEPAL was hit with an earthquake of magnitude 7.9 on 4/25/15 that has ravaged the nation. Lack of infrastructure there has greatly increased the level of difficulty in rescue efforts. Death tolls are over 5000 and rising. Historic landmarks and World heritage sites, (some dating more than 1500 years) were completely destroyed in the process and reduced to piles of rubble. IMMEDIATE needs include medical assistance, search and rescue, food and water and shelters for the now homeless.
Being away from home at these time is a worse feeling. It has been a rough past few days for every Nepalese. we can only imagine what must have gone through all the Nepalese back home. No matter where we are in the globe we all Nepalese shared the same feeling of darkness, uncertainty and despair for past couple of days. Added to these feelings was a feeling of helplessness for those who are residing abroad. We would like to share a voice for all Nepalese living abroad.
