30 Days For Nepal

Reading Time: 4 minutes

30 Days For Nepal (plus a few days extra).

The news shocked me.
nepal, earthquake, nepal earthquake, tweet

I left Nepal on the last day of March this year and everything was still fine. But one shock shook the whole country. One shock devastated an entire nation. One shock turned historic sites into rubble and it made kids at orphanages homeless again.

One shock shook the whole country. One shock shook Nepal forever.

It’s been 37 days since the earthquake and my head is still spinning; I’m still thinking of ways to help, I’m still thinking of ways to get people involved. I e-mailed radio presenters and received no replies. I e-mailed organisations and got no answers. My e-mails never asked for money. It only asked to help raise awareness…

I started a photo series on Instagram – 30 Days for Nepal – to raise awareness for Nepal and for Horac Orphanage.

On the 31st of May – the last day of the project – I wrote:

“This ‘project’ became part of me since the first photo. It made me meditate on Nepal every single day, it made me devote my energy to the friends and strangers in Nepal, it allowed me to carry Nepal in my heart and in my thoughts. Today is the last day of May and I know that something will feel missing tomorrow…”

It started out as #30DaysForNepal but then it morphed into “A Photo a Day for the Month of May”. On the 1st of June it was 36 days later. But I’m sticking with:

30 Days For Nepal

And a few extra days as well:

The Kids at Horac Orphanage.

Horac Orphanage in Kathmandu. The happiest kids that I’ve ever met. That was a few weeks ago. Now they’re afraid; sleeping outside in a tent and they don’t know how long their food will last. These kids were homeless a long time ago and now they are homeless again. It’s heartbreaking. If you feel like donating, go to their website www.horac.org and donate via PayPal. A big bag of rice is just a bit over $10 but that will last a few days. #Nepal #Kathmandu #nepalearthquake #nepalquake #naturaldisaster #earthquake #nepal2015 #orphanage #kids #HelpNepal #prayfornepal #travelgram #donate #donatenepal #nepalese #nepali #relief #Wanderlust #Travel #travelblogger #30daysfornepal

Off the beaten path in Pokhara.

Off the beaten path in Pokhara. I’m dedicating a photo a day during May to raise awareness for Nepal and also for Horac Orphanage. Visit the orphanage at www.horac.org to read about their current situation and/or to make a donation. Or hop on over to @quickchancenepal to donate! Photos are from my trip in Nepal, March 2015. #Nepal #Pokhara #nepalearthquake #nepalquake #naturaldisaster #earthquake #nepal2015 #HelpNepal #prayfornepal #donate #donatenepal #travelgram #latergram #Wanderlust #travelblogger #insta_nepal #bicycle #30daysfornepal

During the whole month of may I dedicated a photo a day to Nepal.
This ‘project’ became part of me since the first photo. It made me meditate on Nepal every single day, it made me devote my energy to the friends and strangers in Nepal, it allowed me to carry Nepal in my heart and in my thoughts. Today is the last day of May and I know that something will feel missing tomorrow. Even though this is the last photo of this ‘project’, Nepal still desperately needs help.

The country is in a critical state. Spare them a few thoughts and donate if you can!

May has come and gone. So has the 36 days. But Nepal is still in a critical state. Nepal still needs help. If you feel like making a donation, or helping in any other way, visit the Orphanage at www.horac.org or contact me if you want to donate to a different cause or if you want to brainstorm ideas! I welcome any suggestions and I’m in contact with various organisations in Nepal who is trying to do their best to help those who suffered!
