Nepal seeks foreign help to rebuild the quake-battered nation
Kathmandu, April 29 (ANI): Nepal said on Tuesday it would require billions of dollars of foreign assistance to reconstruct the quake-hit Himalayan kingdom. Nepal has been ravaged by a devastating earthquake and aftershocks killing thousands of people. Nepal’s Deputy Prime Minister Bamdev Gautam said it will urge friendly countries for help. Nepal’s most deadly quake in 81 years also triggered a huge avalanche on Mount Everest that killed at least 17 climbers and guides, including four foreigners, the worst single disaster on the world’s highest peak. The head of neighboring India’s National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), one of the first foreign organisations to arrive in Nepal to help in the search and rescue effort, said finding survivors and the bodies of the dead would take time. Meanwhile, Nepal’s finance minister, Ram Sharan Mahat, said it was impossible to rebuild the country without foreign help.
