Update: Kopila Valley Kids Unharmed in Nepal Quake

On April 13th, we posted a story about Maggie Doyne, the New Jersey woman behind the building of a home and school (Kopila Valley Children’s Home, School) for displaced children in Nepal. The devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit the nation’s Kathmandu region just 13 days later.  According to BlinkNow, Kopila’s website, “all of our staff & kids are safe. We’re hundreds of kilometers away from the epicenter. All of our buildings are intact and our community was thankfully unharmed. Our heart goes out to everyone in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and the other affected regions.”
