Only one week ago, I was travelling around the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal, enjoying its beauty, historic sites and vibrant cities for the purposes of planning a 2016 tour for Global Family Travels. Just days after leaving, tragedy struck. This past Saturday, April 25, an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 hit Nepal, followed by recurring tremors and aftershocks, centered within a range of less than 60 miles from Kathmandu.
The quakes are the worst the country has experienced over the last 80 years. Current reports of the quakes in Nepal have left a death toll of close to 5000, over 7000 people have been injured, and an estimated 100,000 have been left homeless. In the district where the quake was centered, it has been reported that there are people who are not getting food and water and 70% of houses in villages have been destroyed.
At this critical time, Nepal needs material, financial and emotional support. Countries around the world are contributing extensively via rescue teams and financial support. If you would like to donate to Nepal’s earthquake relief, below we have listed a coup
