On Friday June 5th, a benefit was hosted by a dear friend to our cause, Zette Emmons. There were authentic Nepali momos (aka dumplings), a group of world-class musicians playing a blend of Nepali folk and Appalachian music, and art that many people enthusiastically bid on and took home.
In just one night, we nearly funded house #2!
With the monsoon already happening in Nepal, we will be waiting until August to build the first permanent houses. In the meantime, the team on the ground is building small shelters of brick and metal sheet in order to keep the people dry until they can settle into their homes.
In the meantime, here are some photos from the event. A great time was had by all. If you want to host an event at your home please email Natasha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
