Nepal earthquake damage to Boudhanath stupa.
Above left is a picture of Robert and our guide during our 2006 visit to Nepal. In the background is the Boudhanath stupa (temple). It was built about 1500 years ago, circa 450-600 CE. Above right is a picture of the same stupa, after the April 25, 2015 earthquake. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was the oldest and largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal, and one of the largest in the world.
The current death toll is almost 5,0000 and is expected to perhaps clime as high as 10,000. There are 9,000+ injured and in need of care. A total of eight million have been effected across Nepal, and a million children are in urgent need of food and shelter.

We support the NOLA 4 NEPAL campaign. We know the people organizing this campaign and know that 100% of the funds raised will go to those in need. There will be no administrative costs.

Other good organizations which are accepting donations for Nepal earthquake relief may be found here.

We visited Nepal in 2006. It was a beautiful country with lovely people that all seemed to have a serene inner peace. We felt humbled to walk in such an ancient country among such peaceful people. It is a country which we look forward to returning to.
