Fundraising for Eathrquake Relief Project in Nepal

It’s been 16 months since the devastating earthquake hit Nepal killing over 9,000 people and destroying close to a half a million buildings. It is a great sadness to see that around 90% of affected people are still living in temporary shelters made from plastic sheeting/tarpaulins and corrugated sheets. Their struggles during sweltering heat of summer, torrential rain in monsoon and freezing temperature dropping into minus figures in winter has gone unnoticed the government. The reconstruction works has been massively delayed due to lack of resources and funding. This means, most of the victims will have to endure 2nd year winter, shivering in their temporary shelter with suffering from colds and coughs. It is heart wrenching for us to see our village where we grew up and lived until joining the British Army in such a miserable state.
On 17-18 Aug 16, we, three brothers (Dr Padam, Maj Bishnu and Sgt Bharat) and my son Mr Asbin along with our two friends, Sgt Ganesh and LCpl Nawaraj are taking part on the Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds to rebuild urgently needed community house and medical treatment rooms at Gumdi in Dhading.
