The Sunday Sermon; Nepal

I visited Nepal in the long holiday when I was a tefl teacher, and like most westerners fell in love with it. A country whose economy rests so much on tourism it’s no surprise you could get anything from dope to homemade rye bread. (Good bread became my holy grail when living in Asia, its funny what you miss). So the devastating earthquake there this weekend has a personal side. However this post is prompted by far more than youthful backpacker memories. Nepal has been shattered, the loss of life is huge, the cultural loss to the world immeasurable. The point of this post is simply to gather in one place some of the orgs which are trying to help. If you can donate or retweet it would be much appreciated.

Googles Person finder app please dont call landlines if you can avoid it, in times like this they are needed by rescue and emergency services.
