I am impressed by, and are supporting this independent NZ initiated aid project, the Solu-Khumbu & Helambu Relief Fund, helping the Nepali in the more remote outposts affected by the earthquake/s through supplying medical help, shelter and food before the monsoon further devastates their lives! You can help by donating at https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/nepal-earthquake-2015. Visit their Facebook Page to follow their work! - Graeme -
