“It was like a cloud of dust from the ground going toward the sky…red, red, dust all over. It was such horrifying scenery, many many houses had just collapsed and people were crying and screaming.”

Narayan Shrestha is a Boulder businessman, originally from Nepal, who was in Kathmandu when the earthquake devastated the country in April. He is the founder of a non-profit Helping Hands which is working to help people rebuild in Nepal.
