A year of tragedy
It has been a year since devastating earthquake has hit in Nepal. Last year, today around 11:56 AM on 12th of Baishakh 7.8 magnitude earthquake has hit in Nepal and the center point was in Barpak of Gorkha district. That earthquake has destroyed the capital city of Nepal Kathmandu and other district like: Gorkha, Dhading, Nuwakot, Rasuwa, Sindhupalchok, Kavre, Dolakha, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur and other districts. More than nine thousands people were killed, thousands were injured and homeless, thousands of houses were damaged and destroyed by that tragedy. Likewise, so many schools, government buildings, hospitals, clinics and other monuments were totally damaged. We have felt aftershocks more than 1000 times from 12th of Baishakh.
People, who have been affected by earthquake, got many helping hands eventually. Local people, Nepal Police, Nepal Army and foreigner people has started to help the needy people as much as they can. Many foreigner organizations and Army personal from different countries have come to Nepal to help the victims. They have brought tents, plastic sheets, medicines, foods and other necessary things. Most of the people has to sleep under the plastic sheets and tents because their houses were no more to see. It was very miserable to see how they have spent the time after the earthquake. Many Nepalese people from the country and aboard started to raised the money to help the earthquake victims. And, many people from different countries have raised the money for affected areas and people who have been suffered.
The government of Nepal has helped little bit to the earthquake victims but not much. They are saying to provide money to build house but they haven’t start properly yet. Hope all the people will get enough help by government.
We (Eagle Treks family) extend our heartfelt condolence to the families of all those who lost their life in the massive earthquake last year. We also pray for all injured people for their quick recovery. Let gods give them power to be strong. Live and let live- we will rise again!!!
