Earthquake Update

On the day of the earthquake, the school was closed. While we are glad that it didn't happen on a school day when the children would have had to experience this traumatic experience on their own, we are painfully aware that had it been a school day, all the little ones would have been safe. The school building was not damaged at all.

Since all schools in Nepal have remained closed since the earthquake and since we have no way of reaching the villages where out students live, we do not yet know the status of them and their families. 

We ask that you keep our children and the others in Nepal in your prayers. We will keep you posted as we hear of news from the school.

The hospital which shares the campus with the school has suffered some damage and is struggling to cope with more patients than there are beds. In the first few days after the earthquake, all the patients and staff were camped outdoors. Even surgeries were performed outside while experiencing aftershocks.

As of Wednesday, there had been over 90 aftershocks--many homes are destroyed. Home insurance being non existent, for most people, rebuilding and starting over is not a reality.
