It's hard to believe that Nepal is being hit with a blockade on its Indian border just months after suffering a severe earthquake. Hospitals are running out of medications, gas is running short, and people are unable to get many of the resources they need to continue to work. An indigenous group in southern Nepal has reportedly vowed to continue a three-month-long blockade of all border crossings with India, which has put the entire country at risk of humanitarian crises, until their demand for proportional representation in the government is met.
If the people of Nepal every needed our prayers and dollars, it is now. Please consider purchasing a beautiful Nepalese gift this holiday season.
