Susan Sarandon inaugurates homes for Nepal quake survivors

Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon today unveiled two earthquake and wind resistant houses in Ramkot, one of the worst affected regions of the recent killer quakes in Nepal, to protect the survivors from the upcoming monsoon season.

The 68-year-old "Atlantic City" star, who is on a week-long visit here, is the ambassador of "Live to Love" foundation, a non-profit group specialising in Himalayan humanitarian aid to help the quake victims.

"It is very important for me to be able to talk to the people in the quake affected area and help them at this critical time... she said while addressing media and local people here.
As the quake-hit Nepal is gearing up for the rainy season next month, these homes are being erected with on-ground partners Panchakanya Group and Entrepreneurs' Organization of Nepal. This project will house 1,000 villagers throughout the selected villages in Ramkot within the next two weeks.

"People will be back to their works and visitors can visit beautiful monuments and many natural sites as the monsoon ends," she added.

The Hollywood beauty said she will help rebuild Nepal's tourism, which has suffered badly after the devastating earthquake.

"There are many monuments that haven't fallen and there many beautiful places to visit. I will carry the message back home when I return to my country. We should help the people of Nepal to come back to their work and make them able to support themselves," she said.
