FVCC Hosts Nepal Earthquake Documentary

Flathead Valley Community College and FVCC Global Friends will host a documentary slideshow by Don Nelson illustrating the recent devastation of the April earthquake in Nepal.

 

The presentation will depict the aftermath of the 7.8-magnitude quake which killed more than 8,600 people and demolished rural areas, causing hundreds of thousands of Nepalis to lose their homes and possessions.

 

Free and open to the public, the event will take place October 7 from 6 to 7 p.m. in the large community room inside the Arts & Technology building on the college’s Kalispell campus. Donations will be collected to benefit the charitable organization Children of Kathmandu, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation which provides education, health care and adequate living conditions for needy children in Nepal.
