• Children huddle outside CNN Hero Pushpa Basnet's damaged home for children of incarcerated parents, after the earthquake.


    ABOVE: CNN Hero Pushpa Basnet's children huddle outside her damaged homes in Nepal. We are relieved to report that our three CNN Heroes working in Nepal - Pushpa Basnet, Anuradha Koirala, Maggie Doyne - and the children they care for, are safe. However, in Kathmadu, Basnet's homes for the children of incarcerated parents experienced extensive damage. All would welcome donations to repair, rebuild, and continue their work.
