Revisiting our Bhaktapur Self-Sustaining Orphan Home

Written by Kira Kay on .

Today happens to be exactly 2 months to the day after the Nepal Earthquake - I had not planned it this way but I ended up at our Bhaktapur Self-Sustaining Orphan Home at exactly the same time, sitting outside eating fruit playing with the children as we were on April 25th Saturday at same time as the quake ... this time however there was no earth shaking! The only shaking was from dancing & laughing! Our building is very damaged & we are in the process of evaluation with engineers for repairs which will take some months to undertake as we have quite extensive work to be done to ensure we are super earthquake proofed!! Meanwhile we are sorting out additional temporary shelter support to make these next months of monsoon more comfortable
