Avenues TV Nepal accompanied #RiseNepal to Karesthali village in Northern Kathmandu valley. The team was dispatched to build transitional shelters for families left homeless by the 7.8 Richter scale earthquake that hit the heart of the nation on April 25.
The project was a a real test of ingenuity, resourcefulness and teamwork. Local residents and experts worked side by side with #RiseNepal volunteers to haul, cut, dig, nail and tie pieces together to raise transitional shelters. They worked non-stop for three days in the sun to raise seven shelters.
#RiseNepal is a coordinated volunteer effort supported by the Global Peace Foundation and other members of the Asia Pacific Peace and Development Service Alliance to aid in relief and recovery efforts in Nepal. Go here for the full report on the project.
