Two West Midlands Service Ambulance paramedics who went to earthquake-hit Nepal earlier this year to help with the humanitarian rescue operation are now fundraising to help rebuild several villages.
Ed Hullah who is based in Craven Arms and Pershore-based Phil Llewellyn visited the country in May following its first earthquake 80km north-west of the capital Kathmandu. While they were there, there was a second earthquake near the Chinese border. They also persuaded the country’s Prime Minister to allow use of his personal helicopter to fly a badly injured woman to hospital.
They have now set up ‘Rebuild Nepal’, a not-for-profit organisation. It aims to raise funds to help rebuild the villages most affected by the earthquakes and aftershocks, by helping to provide safer earthquake-resistant houses and public buildings with links to different relief projects throughout Nepal.
‘Rebuild Nepal’ is hoping, with your help, to raise enough money to start a rebuilding project in October, after the monsoon season. This project is expected to take several years.
