The 2015 Earthquakes
25th APRIL 2015 NEPAL CHANGED FOREVER
On Saturday, April 25 2015, at 11:56 am a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal.
It was the worst earthquake in more than 80 years. The epicentre was less than 50 miles northwest of Kathmandu, the country’s capital in central Nepal.
Our close friend Gareth Leonard, aka Tourist2Townie.com, documented the first few days post quake. Watch Below:

Namaste! listen below to Active Hearts founder Dan Keys chatting with the amazing Sian from @SpinningYarnsWithSian on all things Active Hearts. Have yourself a wonderful day 🙏🌻❤️🤙Spinning Yarns With Sian Episode #21:
On Thursday the 13th of April, my guest on Spinning Yarns With Sian on Radio One 91FM was the amazing Dan Keys!
Dan has been a senior trekking guide for 17 years in Aotearoa, Australia, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tanzania; he is passionate about sustainability and tiny houses; and is the Founder of the Active Hearts Foundation.
We had a kōrero about the origins of the Active Hearts Foundation, the seventeen projects they have undertaken so far - including building school libraries and medical center's in rural Nepal; their current and future projects; and the Nepalese, who are his second whānau.
Dan is a keen surfer, and he lives on the beautiful Aparima/Riverton coast, where the surf is dope, but the WiFi is choppy. So, please forgive the few brief pockets that his audio was lost. Click: www.mixcloud.com/Radio_One_91fm_Dunedin/spinning-yarns-with-sian-episode-21/ to listen to our episode and hopefully be activated and inspired.
Check out the Active Hearts Foundation and get involved in the kaupapa: www.activeheartsfoundation.org/.
