When disaster struck, twenty of Nepal’s most impoverished–and most fortunate–young ladies immediately stepped in to help their neighbors.
The young women of the Unatti Foundation‘s group home have been cooking for thousands of their neighbors impacted by last Saturday’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake. They have also been helping to distribute first aid kits, and one young lady is even tending to injured civilians directly.
“Our area was hit pretty heavily, and everyone has been weathering the night outside in open rice and vegetable fields, as they’re fearful of going into their homes,” Stephanie Waisler-Rubin, the Unatti foundation’s founder and president, told People.com.
Girls as young as four have been preparing rice and lentils, and others, like 19-year-old Sangita, have directly administered emergency health services to those who have been hurt. Sangita has lived at the group home for 13 years and is two months shy of completing her nursing college education.
The Unatti Foundation has been providing food, shelter, and education for girls in the underserved region of Bhaktapur for the past 13 years.
