International Compassion in Action

On April 25, 2015, a massive 7.8 earthquake rocked Nepal, collapsing multistory structures in
Kathmandu and causing avalanches and landslides in the Himalayas. Moments after the
earthquake struck, a vast sheet of ice fell thousands of feet, creating an avalanche that wiped out
the village of Langtang, where 400 people lived and where, at that moment, nearly 100 foreign
trekkers were believed to be staying. Katog Choling regional sanghas responded with a national
Compassion in Action project to raise funds to help the surviving residents of Langtang Valley
rebuild their community. Such Compassion in Action activities have continued in all the years
since, regionally and internationally.
