The road loses form in the night. That’s probably a good thing. It’s not much of a road at this point, more a gully full of boulders and hail drifts perched on a cliff. The truck, a 1980-something Tata, bottoms out regularly. Occasionally it fishtails toward the edge and a drop-off of a few hundred feet into the blackness of eastern Nepal’s Khotang district. “Have you looked down?” asks Ben Ayers, the Nepal director of the Dzi Foundation, a nonprofit development group focused on rural communities. The passengers in the car, myself included, too busy bracing ourselves for the next spine-jarring impact, ignore the question.
Emergency earthquake relief is vital but short-lived. The Dzi Foundation brings Nepalis aid that lasts.
