The tremendous infrastructure damage sustained in Nepal due to 2015 earthquakes is slowly but surely being restored and repaired by the Nepalease people.
Majority of the funds that were collected by British Columbia’s Nepalese Community through NHCFBC were used to provide support in this effort. These funds have been targeted towards providing quality education to students with new school buildings as well as establishment of libraries and computer lab facilities in some of the schools.
