Khokana Bungamati

On Sunday afternoon, Deepa , Sabrina and I visited Khokana and Bungmati to observe ‘Child Friendly Spaces’, temporary playgrounds set up by different humanitarian organizations to address the emotional needs of children whose lives were affected by the recent earthquake in Nepal. Following are the photo series taken during our visit to the area which was hit hard by the natural disaster, leaving many people homeless.
