Blockades have in many ways impacted the economy here worse than the earthquakes

During the daily, scheduled power outages (due to a lack of sufficient electricity in Nepal at the best of times), much of the country runs on diesel powered generators. This includes hospitals, internet service providers, the banking system, etc. So, the lack of fuel affects a lot more than people’s ability to get around. Please continue to think of the people of Nepal, who are still picking up the pieces after the earthquakes and are now forced to deal with this crippling blockade, as well. These blockades have in many ways impacted the economy here worse than the earthquakes.
