Nepali Earthquake Relief: The Basnets

Organized by: Brian Anderson

THE STORY:

Last summer I traveled to Nepal to hike in the Himalayas for a few weeks. Within the first few days of trekking I was bit by a tick and became very sick. I returned to a village and arbitrarily chose a place to stay. I could have ended up at any tea house along the strip, but I found myself under the care of a woman named Gita. Gita just so happens to have a brother that is a pharmacist in the capital city, Kathmandu. She not only coordinated my transport to the hospital but also accompanied me on the 9 hour drive. She introduced me to her brothers who provided me with all the medicine I needed and a place to stay as I regained my health. Jayram and Dipak brought me to some of their favorite places in the city to show me a good time and get me moving again. When I was healthy I went off and trekked for a few weeks. I returned to the capital and did not hesitate in calling up my new friends, staying a few nights, and saying goodbye before returning to America. By the end of my trip I had spent over a week under the care, under the roof, and in the pleasant company of the Basnets.

As I'm sure many of you are aware, a powerful earthquake recently devastated many regions in Nepal. The Basnets, luckily, have all emerged with their lives, but their livelihoods and their properties have been completely destroyed. The same houses that I stayed in have been reduced to rubble. The same people that went so far beyond their duty and bent so far out of their way in helping me in a time of need are now homeless, jobless, and in a far worse situation than the one I found myself in last summer. I'm asking you all if you would please donate a few bucks and tell a few people. (Money goes much further there than it does here. For example, for around $12 a day I was able to pay for a hotel room and eat 3 normal sized meals.) I truly am indebted to the Basnets and I would sincerely appreciate you helping me help them.
