Relief Help to Nepal Earthquake Victims in Villages

April 30, 2015: The powerful earthquake shook the Nepal. Research sites hosted weather stations in villages of Dhading and Syngja districts were severely affected magnitude of 7.9 richter scale. We took initiative with my friends and families to raise the fund in USA and purchased the relief material India (Kanpur).  We planned to direct our help to the people in villages that hosted our weather station and research demonstration site in Dhading district. Also, we targeted neighboring Gorkha district which is close to epicenter and has larger destruction.  As most of relief support material received in Kathmandu and moved slowly to remote villages, we enrooted our relief material through India/Nepal Sunauli border, which was easy to reach these areas.  Our local project team members collected the material at Border and distributed those in above mentioned villages. http://www.lakhankar.com/nepal
