Good morning. As I’m sure you’ve heard on the news, the country of Nepal just experienced its worst earthquake in history. The death toll is over 2,300 and thousands more have been injured, displaced or lost their homes.
As I wake up in my home in Charlotte with a cup of chai green tea and a smoothie there are 48 children in Nepal sleeping outside in a field after evacuating their home due to the earthquake.
Last year I shared a post with you about the documentary Waiting for Mamu which tells the story of Pushpa Basnet, a child activist who adopts children in Nepal whose mothers are in prison and provides them with a home and an education.
I learned yesterday from my friend Thomas Morgan who made the documentary that Pushpa and her 48 adopted children are living in a field. Tom has been in communication with Pushpa and learned that the rented home that she and the children live in has been destroyed. What’s worse, Pushpa was in the process of building a new dream home for the children and it suffered major damage as well.
Tom shared this update from Pushpa:
“My boys, we are safe but lots of damaged now we are staying in a plastic home … Kids are safe …. My kids are very scared …. Everything is damaged in home …”
I am heartbroken for her and these beautiful children this morning.
I am so fortunate to have this platform to help share her message and her story and I beg of you to consider donating to help them begin to rebuild.
Get details on how to donate on the Waiting for Mamu site.
Thank you. <3
