I'm devastated and disturbed after spending the day in the mountains of Nepal's Sindhupalchowk District with Dr Fahim Rahim. He chartered a private helicopter to deliver food and plastic tarps to several remote villages, which have been completely flattened by the earthquake.
Today I realised that most professional journalists and bloggers (including myself) have gotten it so wrong. The story of the Nepal earthquake is not about the rubble, it's about the people.
The situation in the villages of Sindhupalchowk District is dire. Entire villages have been wiped off the face of the earth, with not even a single building left standing.
His parents told me that this little rockstar fell during the earthquake. He's been complaining of chest pain since. Doctor Taysom, RN EMT Paramedic, has checked him out
Full credit and deepest gratitude to Dr. Fahim Rahim of Pocatello, Idaho, for organising the largest private American earthquake relief effort in Nepal
"The story of the Nepal Earthquake is not a story about rubble. It's the story about perseverance, about people helping one another, about smiling in the face of disaster, about the youth mobilising through social media to organise and move as one." -- Dr. Fahim Rahim
