The earthquake shifted Kathmandu three meters to South in only 30 seconds. So far, more than 6200 people have been declared dead and the Nepal authorities have said that the number of dead can cross 10,000. Several neighboring countries like India, China, Pakistan and many others have joined in relief and rescue operations. The earthquake shook the Mt. Everest too, where an avalanche killed at least 19 people, making it one of the major tragedies in the mountain’s history. After around a week since the quake, life in some parts is returning back to normal. People are shifting back to their residential areas from the relief tents, while as thousands are homeless. The rescue to find bodies or people who survived continues and several have been found alive miraculously under the rubble.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
