Second batch of Nepal Seattle Society Earthquake Relief - May 09 2015

Second relief volunteer team reached Bungkot, Gorkha.
Our volunteers bought 84 sacks of Rice and got help from villagers to back-carry up to Jogidada. 
Kudos to our nepalese community and friends from Washington state and volunteers Ganga Prasad Adhikari and Hari who managed that effort in Bungkot. People from Bungkot were very happy to get some grains. 
Quoted from one of the volunteers:
“I'm really happy to see them carrying rice-bags with little smile , hiding all the pain they are facing after losing their homes/stored-foods/cattles. Thank You So much And Thank You NSS to help us !!!"
