On Tuesday evening, September 19, "Nepal's Heartbeat" was shown at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre in Duncan. This documentary, produced and directed by Nick Versteeg, is a sequel to the previous documentary "Five Weeks In Nepal".  Nepal's Heartbeat is an informative film on the aftermath of the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal in 2015. The evening was also a fundraiser for the local Rotary Clubs that sponsor many worthwhile causes in the world.
Guest speakers were Chris Considine, the Honourable Consul General of Nepal, Bishnu Pandey, who was born in Nepal, but is now a BCIT professor in Vancouver and a world expert on seismic upgrades in rebuilding countries affected by earthquakes. Another speaker, Rob Tournour whose organization  "Another Brick in Nepal" 
 explained to the audience how his team has been helping Nepal with the reconstruction of collapsed schools after the earthquake in 2015.

We are very grateful that so many people attended the evening and judging by the excellent comments we received, we know that there is an enormous interest in how to deal with the aftermath of earthquakes. We are all aware that we could be faced with similar conditions in the future! 
A heartfelt thanks to all who made our evening a tremendous success.


September 19 Premiѐre of
“Nepal's Heartbeat”
lives within the infinite resilience of its people
will be shown at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre

In the sequel of “Five weeks in Nepal” producer Nick Versteeg, takes us back to Nepal to show what happened with the donations that were made two years ago after the devastating earthquake that killed more than 8000 people.

We travel with Nick and his guide Bibi to the Khumbu Valley and see the rebuilding process first hand. In the chaotic city of Kathmandu they are rebuilding the three hundred year old temples that came down in Bhaktapur.

Nick also teamed up with Rob Tournour’s organization “Another Brick in Nepal” to show the work his organization is doing to rebuild schools.
We travel with world-renowned earthquake expert Dr. Bishnu Pandey who is teaching the Nepalese people how to build better homes. The villagers are not and cannot be dependent on a chaotic government for reconstruction even though such has been promised.

It is with financial and technical help from outsiders all over the world that they rebuild their houses, schools and medical centres.
These villagers are the beating heart of Nepal. It is their infinite and inexhaustible resilience, which inspires the rest of the world.
