Updates from Sermathang (Yangrima School)
Thankfully, the students are uninjured. The school buildings have been completely destroyed. The focus now is on providing sufficient food, clothing, and shelter. Tashi, our close friend and school director, is doing much of the food coordinating, and is currently directing the efforts to provide 30 kg of rice to every villager in surrounding villages.
Tashi and his physician brother have helped with medical care and helicopter transportation for 10 people so far, especially in a nearby village that saw more than 200 people die and 300 injured and under treatment. This village has been isolated as roadways have been completely blocked ground transportation.
Tashi is now planning to build a temporary place to continue educating the Yangrima School students.
