On 18th May our team visited Bhorle-3 to meet two mothers – Kali Ghising and Butti Ghising. Both their homes were destroyed by the quake. Kali Ghising, 26, has a one-month-old baby and an 8-year-old son. She lost her husband in the quake and is worried about how she will raise her two kids. She received a bag of new mother supplies and a cash gift of NPR 10,000 through Nehi Fund as emergency relief. Butti Ghising, 33, gave birth to a third child on 25th April, the day the big quake struck. Her oldest son is 13 and her second son died of blood cancer at the age of 11. She received a bag of new mother supplies through Nehi Fund.
