Photos by Paul Sack
Written by Maxby Chan

Faces of children of Laprak were taken by Paul Sack on his journey to Laprak village on 19th June 2015. Laprak village was struck by a devastating earthquake on 25th April 2015. It was at the epicentre of this quake and about 90% of the houses were destroyed. The villagers seek higher ground to rebuilt their homes. The village was split into four to five settlements, the largest was location at 2,700m where 3,000 people call this place home.

Photosafari together with photographers of Nepal has started an initiative to help the people of Laprak recover from this calamity.

Paul spent more than four days in Laprak, helping out in assessment on what is needed for the recovery process.

The innocent faces of the children tell their own story.

We need volunteers who can:-
1. Teach the nursery kids art, handicraft or English.
2. Teach the womenfolk a commercial handicraft craft.
3. A photographer cum writer to document the recovery process.

You need to be able to stay at least two weeks in Laprak. You also need to pay for your air ticket to and from Kathmandu. All ground expenses, accommodation and food in Nepal will be paid by us.

If you like to volunteer for any of the above work in Laprak in October, please do contact Maxby Chan of Photosafari.
