What to do when disaster strikes the places we have been through?
We can give money, and we do, but we’re only 1 family.
A big part of the old town section of Shangri La, in Yunnan province in China burned in Jan 2014. Tremendously sad, these buildings were hundreds of years old and very beautiful.
As we all know, Nepal was struck by an earthquake in the spring of 2015. Many of the areas we were in were completely destroyed. The temples of Kathmandu, Kyanjin Gompa, Thulo Syrabru, all destroyed. Many people died, possibly many that we met and shared experiences with.
Many other places have flooded, experienced violence, or had another malady. We try to raise awareness of all of this. Life goes on for all of us even when disaster strikes.
