One Year On!

A year ago today a 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, and its surrounding areas, killing more than 8,000 people, followed by some 120 aftershocks.

A second major earthquake, magnitude 7.3, hit eastern Nepal, near Mount Everest on the 12th of May where more than 100 people were killed and thousands more injured.

It is hard to believe that in less than a few weeks time I will be seeing firsthand the devastation caused by this.  I can’t wait to meet the local people and hopefully hear their stories.  I know that many thousands of them are still without a home and living in appalling circumstances.  I would like them to know that people are thinking of them and that they haven’t been forgotten.
