PLEASE HELP THREE SISTERS OF SINDHUPALCHOK

The world is changed by those who offer hope and opportunity to those who have none, by those who give love to those who have none, to those who hold the sick and poor and whisper through tears that it will be all right.

“Our father passed away when I was young and my mother left us because we did not have any brothers. After the earthquake our property and livelihood were destroyed. Since the moment, we three sisters ages 12, 16 and 17, are trying to survive with what we have and we are barely surviving. Our neighbors helped us to put together this small temporary place for us to live. 
We are surviving with others kindness. We are determined to get an education and be somebody. We do not know where my mother is, but we carry an ambition to show my mother that even without her we plan to survive. We are out to become someone important and make my village proud." (Urmila Thapa, Sindhupalchok)
