Earthquake in Sikkim

The earthquake that centered on Sikkim a few days ago has killed around 50 people in Sikkim and another 30 or so in the adjacent Darjeeling district, and also Nepal.

Fortunately, we have had no reports of deaths or damage in the schools we support in the area.

The Himalayas are an earthquake zone, and most of the buildings are not earthquake proof.

I want to let you know that I have looked at a lot of volunteer organizations since I did your program and you have (as far as I can tell) one of the best. I really like how much you personally care about each volunteer and each school.
