Notes from the field

Notes from the field

‘Notes from the field’ is a reporting initiative, where we aim to carry the voices and stories of the people and places that have seen the devastation of the April 2015 earthquake in Nepal, and of those volunteers and relief workers who are in the front lines of aid operations. Through this effort, we will try to keep an active engagement with these individuals and areas so that the disaster relief and rehabilitation efforts get sustained attention in the long run.
