The schools built and renovated thanks to the solidarity bibs in Sindhupalchock district are probably all destroyed or badly damaged as they were in an area strongly affected by the earthquake...
The first children's home built in Mélanchi have been destroyed...
Communications are difficult, it's still early to estimate the damage but the material losses are important.
We will inform you of the evolution of the situation.
The Community of Municipalities of the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Valley initiated a call for donations to support local populations!
To help them, all information here: www.cc-valleedechamonixmontblanc.fr
Following the massive earthquake and its aftershocks, we want to strengthen our support to Nepalese people in this tragic ordeal. We are very affected by these events that affect our friends of the charity "Les Amis de Children’s Home", which we support since 2007.
The orphanage Melanchi, supported through solidarity bibs and donation from runners, was hit by the earthquake. Fortunately, children and staff are all safe! But the orphanage is cracked from side to side and the children have to stay outside.
One of our solidarity runners was yesterday at the base camp of Mount Everest, which was also affected. We hope to receive some news...
We expect more news to identify needs on site.
