Rebuiding Nepal

IMG_1578On April 25, 2015, a 7.8 Magnitude earthquake ripped through Nepal, destroying a half million homes, killing over 8,500 people and injuring over 16,000.

Binod Chaudhary, who spoke at an FCC lunch on June 15, and his family are spearheading a campaign through his charitable CG Foundation to rebuild Nepal. Chaudhary is a leading philanthropist and top industrialist in Nepal, heading the Chaudhary Group which operates over 40 businesses employing 6,000 people.

IMG_1568Chaudhary, who has been rallying support from the international community, said the most urgent need lies not just in raising money but in building a reliable support system that brings together transport, housing, food and medical support for the local population. He provided an update on the latest from the ground, discussed how people can help and spread the word, and reviewed the actions he was taking to stem the crisis, rebuild the nation and bring back business and the trekking community. A passionate trekker himself, Chaudhary was worried that the global media was forgetting his country after the initial headlines following the earthquake.
