"The media has long since moved on from Nepal...but if I can get one thing across to everyone here today it would be that if do want to do something, you haven't missed the boat."
In Mountains of Support for Nepal from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 127, International Disaster Relief Coordinator for NGO PeaceBoat, Robin Lewis, shares his passion of being a humanitarian aide worker, hoping to raise awareness through his experiences working in areas hit by disasters, most recently Nepal. Here is discusses the situation on the ground in Kathmandu and in the outlying rural areas, highlighting the various response initiatives he and his team have conducted, and the challenges still faced by the Nepalese people living there.
