Rogepur

I’m doing ok. I’m in Roghepur, in Supaul district, Bihar, about 15 km from the Nepal border, in the Koshi flood zone. I’m living in a Gugarat-based NGO camp for now, spending daytime distributing medicine and taking pictures, nighttime living in canvas tents with some truly, sincerely good people. There are about 200,000 people in refugee camps here, and the conditions could be worse but they could be a lot better too. Its so sad. So so sad.

    Holy moly! What an experience!

    You’ll have to tell me all about it when you get here 🙂
