Thank you everyone for your kind donations which will go to the most needy of the organisations we visited in Nepal. Thank you also to Malaysian Airlines for waiving our excess baggage.
Many of the children in Nepal lost not only their homes but their parents and entire families in the earthquakes.
We were able to see first-hand, on-the-ground people picking up the pieces of so many fragmented lives. Such resilience and good work was truly inspiring.
Here are some photos of our team arriving in Nepal (and one of our members helping a Nepali woman up a hill) with all all of the supplies we personally purchased or which were donated, a photo of me passing out food to children, and the happy children of Lophelling School in Manang receiving their goods, which included:
60 School bags, pencil cases with pencils, pens, erasers and stickers, crayons and colouring books, water bottles, thermal socks, large towels, washing gloves, markers, a weighing scale as well as adult clothing (warm jackets and boots), LED lighting and water devices, garden gloves and seeds, eye glasses, woollen hats and some medical supplies.
We even fitted in a couple of soccer balls and a Twister game for the children at one school!
