Annapurna, 16th May, 2015
Know that in the remote area of Gorkha, the villagers still hadn’t got enough food supplies, we went to another mountain village called Annapurna.

With the help of all the board members from Edventure Nepal again, we had distributed 6750KG of food including rice, lentils, dry noodle and salt to about 550 families.

After the second delivery of relief materials, we heard from villagers that some schools collapsed partially during the earthquake, and temporary shelters are built for students.

Realizing that just distributing food will not help the villagers to be self-sustained, we went to inspect the current situation of the schools, and wanted to identify schools which need to be rebuilt in the region.
