Another Big Earthquake – 12 May

Yet another big earthquake 7.3 rocked Nepal just when people were starting to feel little relaxed and get back to their daily routines. Many people were in their offices when the earthquake hit, same as all the KTS staff. Our office building once again withstood the earthquake and all our staffs were safe. However, the Kumbeshwar Temple in front of our office has sustained damage. Our office will remain closed for rest of week as the fear of earthquake has been renewed.

Lot of people spent the night outdoors due to fears of big aftershocks. Our producers group from Banepa called us for help with tarpaulin as many of their already cracked houses became more unsafe. With shortage of tarpaulin in Nepal, we had contacted our relatives and friends and with their help we were able to get tarpaulins. We had been distributing it to our producers, KTS neighbourhood and help source the tarpaulins to Fair Trade Group Nepal and partner Fair Trade Organisation.

We all wish that the earthquake will stop and let us get back to our life and rebuilding Nepal.IMG_0311 IMG_0304IMG_0295 IMG_0299 IMG_0300 IMG_0302IMG_0306

  1. I hope and pray that this is the last of the earthquakes and that life can begin to return to normal. Many people here have the Nepalese people in their hearts and we think about you a lot.
