Students Reach Out To Earthquake Victims
Now the many survivors left homeless are dealing with temperatures colder than those here in mid-Missouri. Campus groups braved the cold to raise money for the survivors on Thursday. The money will be used for shelter for the victims and a new village at the foot of the Himalayas. Rose Procter is part of the organization that is building the village of hope for 1,000 surviving children.
"We have a primary school inside the village for the children, the shelters themselves, and a hospital and counseling center on side for the children to give them some sense of normalcy," said Procter, the director of the International Medical and Educational Trust (IMET).
