It’s just one of thousands of villages. But it’s the one we have visited the most. The earthquake destroyed almost all the houses and left the rest damaged. What next?!
It was a beautiful, thriving village – until 25 April when most was turned into rubble. But already now, some villagers are trying to rebuild – what support will they get from the outside, how much, and how fast?!
The rain is coming! There is little shelter, a crack has split the ridge, landslides may await. How will locals get through the hardship – and how will they ever rebuild?!
We’ll follow the struggle for recovery in Palanchok over the next many months – not only because we know this village well, but also as it illustrates the plight of many others.
What happens in Palanchok goes on in many other villages.
