It has been almost a week from the horrible disaster, and new and new distressing facts are coming up every day.

After the Nepal’s earthquakes, mountain villages that were located closer to the epicenter of the earthquake were damaged at most. But it would be more easier to go through this trial if they could have been accessed and helped by the rest of the community. But the earthquake also destroyed the above-ground communications like roads or train lines.

One of such villages is Keura, that is located to the northwest of Kathmandu. Roads there are muddy, slippery and extremely dangerous and in order to get to Keura you need to use a SUV or a truck. A temporary aid center has been set up there and volunteers are doing their best to help the victims of the disaster.
