The cobblestone streets of #Bhaktapur, circa 1993. One of my favorite cities in the world, Bhaktapur is an intricate mix of urban and rural, with ancient brick homes, bedecked with ornamented wooden windows, lining winding paths filled with smiles.
At least 50% of that is now gone forever, reduced to rubble by the earthquake. Homes are demolished, orphanages crumbled, hospitals broken, and 300 year old monuments shattered in minutes…along with countless lives lost and forever changed.

Please help #Nepal however you can. Make a donation today. Get in touch if you are going over to help. And remember this will not be finished when the news stops reporting. The rebuilding of lives and communities will take years, so keep giving, please.
