Nepal: A Photo Essay - Part Three

Reflections - Bhaktapur & Kathmandu

In January 2015, we were part of a month-long humanitarian expedition and construction team that trekked for five days to a remote Nepalese village to help improve a local primary school. This three-part photo essay is arranged chronologically, with no photos edited, to share and preserve the beauty and warmth of an unforgettable journey. We returned only two months before the 8.1 magnitude earthquake in April 2015 that killed 8,000 people and injured more than 21,000, followed by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake in May that killed 218 more and left 3,500 injured. Nepal is and will be recovering from the devastation for years to come. If you'd like to help or contribute, please contact Aussie Action Abroad or Architects without Frontiers to find out more.
