Help Nepal  – Earthquake 2015

Simon the Nomad’s Grassroots Relief

Six months into living in Pokhara, Nepal, the devastating earthquake hit. With a mind for helping communities in need, Simon put up a GoFundMe and launched one of the first grassroots relief efforts in the wake of the disaster. \While the international NGOs could be compared to a big ship, grassroots relief groups are more comparable to a little speedboat: they get in, they get out. It’s very efficient but does not carry the same brand of big supplies (or red tape, for that matter).
