Our thoughts for Nepal

Flag of Nepal

It is a few days after the 7.8 earthquake around Kathmandu and the death toll has climbed to over 4,000. It is likely to go higher.

It is Nepal’s worst earthquake in 80 years where the source of the quake was very near to the earths surface, which amplified its impact.

I am sure most have you have seen that it caused avalanches on Everest and destruction in the towns and villages.Phone lines are down, roads and blocked and food and water supplies are disrupted.

The airport of Katmandu is overloaded by aid coming in and people wanting to get out.

The New York Times has more information for those wishing to read on.

However, Roads-2-Roam is asking for you to give generously to aid relief of Nepal. Today Facebook was offering to match your donation so if you see it, please take advantage of this.

In the meantime, those impacted are in our thoughts. Remember..There but for the grace of God go I.

Postscript: I’ve included a picture from Nepal on better days. Let’s be sure to support Nepal by traveling there when things get settled.
