Blankets For Earthquake Victims
Updated: Jul 25, 2019
Marian recently went to Kathmandu to visit some of the mountain villages most effected by the earthquake. Being from India, Marian is familiar with poverty, but he was not prepared for what he was about to see in these villages. He was greatly affected by the extreme poverty in these places. These people are truly the poorest of the poor. Most of them are still living under plastic tents and corrugated metal sheets and suffering greatly. They are getting sick, they have no warm clothes, no medical help, and the government is doing nothing to help. We have pledged to provide blankets to help these people survive the winter. Due to the increased demand for blankets in Nepal, and compounded by the current Indian blockade, the prices have skyrocketed.
