See a bit of Nepal through AWsome Media lens, and if you feel like helping – buy some of the photographs to support rebuilding lives in Nepal.
It’s almost a year since the disaster struck. On April 25 the earthquake of 7.8 magnitude killed 9.000 people. Then the 7.3 magnitude aftershock on May 12 wiped out whatever was left standing. An unimaginable disaster for Nepal – a place we visited only just 2 months before the first earthquake. Sites we walked through turned into rubble. Half a million people were displaced from their homes. Barely functioning infrastructure was completely destroyed.
We do remember, however, the warmth of the people we met, the beautiful Himalayas we trekked or that spellbinding mood around the main Kathmandu stupa. There are photographs to tell these stories, and we would like you to see them.
During this exhibition we will display almost 50 photographs taken during the trip. We will take you for a trek in the Himalayas, show you the Tibetan new year’s festival Losar, walk down the streets of Kathmandu and circle around the enchanting Boudhanath stupa.
The soundtrack for the event is delivered by DJ BeatNaut Automata, who will fill the place with mantra, shanti and ambient vibes.
The good folks at Kiosk Singapore will also donate their entire profit from the night to the cause. How cool is that!
The objective is to help people of Nepal who are still struggling with returning to normal life. All the displayed works will be for sale, and all the profits will be handed over to a charity organisation in Nepal and sherpa leading a group of mountain porters (with no tourism these porters are left with no income whatsoever, struggling with everything from basic needs to continued children education).
“Little Poland in Nepal” Mała Polska w Nepalu is the charity foundation we partnered with. They help with rebuilding Dumre village, Nuwakot district, Sunkhani region – about 29 km from Kathmandu. The village was completely destroyed, over a dozen of houses and one school need to be rebuild from scratch. The first works are already underway, but there is so much more to do. www.malapolskawnepalu.org
