Wish for Nepali New Year 2073

The New Nepali year of 2073 has begun. Exactly one year ago, Nepal was rocked by major earthquakes. Shiva Sapkota said, “We're leaving the bad year of 2072 behind us. Now we can happily look forward to improvement and recovery. There haven't been any aftershocks for awhile now.”

Personal appeal

Shiva will try to go to Dhading today. The situation the people and children find themselves in is very dire. Shiva is making a personal appeal to send money for food and tents. The rainy season has arrived and the nights are chilly.

Scarce information

28-4-15  We are trying several ways to contact Shiva Sapkota who is in Kathmandu. The little bit of information we are receiving here in the Netherlands is through direct family and friends..


Dhading was at the epicenter of the earthquake. As far as we know there were no Pure Nepal guests in Dhading. According to recent information the guest families have no major physical injuries

Familie Sapkota safe after quake

25-4-15 A short message reached relatives in the Netherlands, saying that Shiva and Ilse Sapkota-Bennink and their children are safe. Also safe are family members who were staying with them in Kathmandu.  At the moment that the earthquake hit, they were outside on a square for a celebration. Direct contact with the Sapkota family was not possible yet.



Seasons Greetings

23-12-14 From The Netherlands Shiva & Ilse Sapkota and their children like to wish all of you a happy Christmas and all the best for 2015!


"Thanks to you, our guests, friends, volunteers and other relations, we look back on a year with many hart-warming moments!  We do hope, we may welcome many of you in Nepal in 2015 again. Just like this year, with all the Nepalese warmth and hospitality!”
