The Children of Foley

Some fresh photos of the children of Foley, as fundraising begins for the rebuilding of the preschool, school and health post destroyed in the 2011 Himalayan Earthquake.

Foley is a poor Tibetan refugee community i north eastern Nepal settled following the Chinese invasion of Tibet in the 1950's. It maintains trade routes to Tibet via Olangchungola and gets limited support from the Tibetan government in exile in Dharamsala. For the last twenty years it has been assisted in educating its children by the Kanchanjunga School Project.
