Hollywood actress Susan Sarandon appeals tourists to visit earthquake-hit Nepal

Oscar winning Hollywood actress is in Nepal for five days and she urges all to visit Nepal and help rebuild the community along tourism sector of the nation that has been seriously damaged by recent earthquake and continuing aftershocks. She is staying with the famed Kung-fu nuns in a Buddhist monastery and later in an orphanage that was damaged in one of the quakes.

Sarandon said “It is important to emphasize that by the fall, when monsoon ends, people should make their reservations now if they want to help and they want to come and visit because it is very, very important to keep all these jobs alive,” while inaugurating a campaign to build 201 huts for villagers outside the affected village nearby Kathmandu. She added “I think that would be the next wave — to think of Nepal not as an ongoing disaster, but as a country that has found its way back and has many monuments that haven’t fallen and many beautiful areas that can be still safe to trek,” .

Most of the local communities in Nepal are dependent on tourism sector heavily. Almost one million tourist visits Nepal on annual basis. Therefore to reform the nation and people living there, Sarandon appeals tourists to visit Nepal in coming season.
