North Carolina’s Nepalese Community Aids Earthquake Victims

I’m going to India soon. It’s my first trip back to the country of my birth in 20 years. This will be my husband and sons’ first time there. We’ll be visiting this vast country, rich in its colorful tapestry of history and culture. We had actually toyed with going to Nepal as well. Plans changed.

I exhale a sigh of relief while simultaneously inhaling a grand  breath of disbelief. In a matter of days I will be with my family in India, not far from the devastation that has rocked her neighbor Nepal.

North Carolina has a robust Indian and Nepalese community. We benefit from the myriad people who comprise this community in countless ways. Today this community stands tall and proud as it seeks to lifts its own.

Generous in spirit and so much more…
