(From Email from Manika: Today we went to visit Mr. tiwari at his bal kendra and it was nice to listen him about their task. As per them, they will be happy if we provide some help to needy families who's children are studying in balkendra. he has given us some choices like either give some foods or school dress for 15-20 students or some blankets to them. So I said we will think about it and let him know. I have captured some pictures of balkendra and children in link below. Our main focus ishalchowk but he is helping us, so I visit his place to make a good relation with his group. So If you feel any kind of support to them please suggest me. 01 02 03 After than we went to Halchok, everyone is working smoothly. As per them, Budhi bahadur is a well trained earthquake resistant mason. So, he is guiding to others. They are planning to set cement by tomorrow morning so we are going tomorrow morning as well.)
Rebuilding work has been going on smoothly since our last update. Budhi Bahadur is a well trained earthquake-resistant mason, and he's been guiding others with his expertise.
