Left: Gurash Gureng (22), Deepak Khatri (23), and Asmi Tamang (21) are radio disk jockeys on Radio Sindhu, a community radio station that broadcasts news bulletins, music, and public awareness programming across Sindhupalchowk district. After the earthquake made their building unsafe they relocated to this open bike shed and set up their equipment for broadcast.
'We got calls from people across the area saying 'we can't hear you' so we decided to set up here. It's difficult to get supplies but we were given a new arial (by a swiss NGO) and got hold of fuel for the generator and have been broadcastings around the clock since Monday (two days after the earthquake).'
The team receives regular missing persons calls and has helped to reunite three people with their families in the past week.
