Radio Plays Vital Role in Quake-Ridden Nepal

The horrendous earthquakes that ripped through Nepal in April and May 2015 killed thousands of people, seriously injured many more, and flattened much of this mountainous country's infrastructure, including its government, commercial and community radio stations. In the wake of these disasters, Nepal's broadcasters have stood up for their people by doing whatever it takes to get their life-saving transmissions back on air.

Given the extent of the damage, the level of human tragedy that has affected all Nepalese and the country's limited communications, electrical and emergency response capabilities, these efforts are nothing short of heroic. But Nepal's broadcasters understand that their broadcasts are lifelines for listeners seeking life-saving assistance, information, and a sense of connection with the rest of their fellow citizens.
