MB traveled to Nepal in October 2012. Beautiful country. Beautiful people. Help!
The following photos are a mix of people & places in Kathmandu, the capital, and Nagarkot, a beautifully picturesque Hill Station in the Kathmandu Valley.
Thanks H. Appreciate your comment and your action.
So thankful your family got out safe … and thank you for this beautiful and eloquent plea on behalf of those who didn’t. I’m off to share it on Facebook.
Thanks CG. We can only keep shining the light.
Heartbreaking. Thankful your family is safe.
The photos leave me haunted. Beautiful, but then reality hits.
Your post brings a ray of light at such a desperate time.
Thanks Gypsy. Repost Repost. Repost. Had immediate family over there last week who departed 30 minutes before it struck. Was worrying few hours as we tried without success to make contact, not being sure of his departure time or exact date. But lucky us in the end. Horrific situation obviously for the natives. Can only donate and spread the word a little.
So happy to hear your family made it out safe.
So sad for those who didn’t, and for their loved ones.
So incredulous at those who carry on despite all they’ve lost.
These little moments that make us reconsider our purpose here on this earth…
Keep on doing good stuff MB.
Also posted a link on FB and Twitter … though I have about as much of a following on both as I have on my blog, I figure every little bit helps.
Beautiful images and sunny skies. These pictures are a reflection of the Nepalese more than of Nepal today, eh MB? Their resilience and strength of character is beyond anything I can put into words … forgive me if I say the imagery in this post negates the words in your last post. Even 1 million words would fail to describe the beauty of these people.
I sat speechless this afternoon with one of our office tea girls; she learned she’d lost her uncle this morning and her brother this afternoon. One of our office guards sat with my team this morning, thanking God that his family had been spared even if his house had not. He’d been in touch with the family sporadically; their house is reduced to rubble and they’re living in a local primary school. He’s been in Qatar 10 years to build that house.
We are donating to individuals, as well as through our companies’ and (daughter’s) school’s fundraising efforts, yet I feel so powerless as we slip the riyals into the individual envelopes. All I have left is prayers.
May God bless them all.
Thank you for the article. I will re-post if that’s ok.
