KAMPAN – True stories of loss, resilience, and triumph after the tragic seismic shift in Nepal – is a book that needs to be experienced. In 2015, Nepal experienced an earthquake so powerful and horrific that it changed the lives of millions of Nepalis in just a matter of few minutes. Lives were lost, buildings turned to debris, and hopes turned to fear. 25th April 2015 still feels like a nightmare. The thought of its occurrence makes us shudder in fright; a black day for the citizens of Nepal.
