One Year Later …..

As the days draw closer to April 25th, my thoughts return to my beloved Nepal and the devastating earthquakes it’s people endured, many of whom continue to suffer.

Al Jazeera’s Steve Chou gives a good account of what life is like out in the villages one year later.

 

About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.

    I have heard so much about the delays from the government and, indeed, the corruption that has siphoned off so much of the aid. It is heart-breaking. The best effort I am aware of comes from an Indian friend, who raised a lot of money and simply went into a particular village and began the reconstruction.
