I spent quite a lot of time in Nepal in the 1990s participating in heritage conferences and for the UN Development Programme on a project to reduce poverty through sustainable tourism. I met hundreds of people. Here are some of the faces that need the world’s help now more than ever.
Newari Kids, Kathmandu
Traditional Folk Dancer, Kathmandu Valley
Spinner, Women’s Cooperatiive, Kathmandu
Monk, Boudhanath Temple, Kathmandu. Suffered major damage
Saddu (Holy Man) Kathmandu
Musician, Changu Narayan

Lumbini, Buddha’s Birthplace suffered little damage
Mourning the Dead, Pashupatinath Temple, Kathmandu – One of Nepal’s holiest sites suffered little damage in the earthquake. Nepalis are now there performing last rites.
