“I am very proud to be married to a Nepalese man, Sanu Gurung. We have three gorgeous sons. My connection with this lovely country is very strong .
Our objective with ‘Bring Back the Smile to Nepal’ is to raise funds to help with the awful disaster that has struck this beautiful land and its people.
It is extremely frightening for them. Rescue teams haven’t yet managed to reach the mountainous villages, which have been virtually wiped out.
This is going to be an enormous project. The death toll is huge and rising. The number of casualties is massive and the destruction of people’s homes and livelihood is horrific. Unseasonal rains are hampering rescue efforts. Monsoon is just around the corner. The already fragile infrastructure of the country has been torn to pieces.
So with this in mind I aim to keep this appeal in the forefront of people’s minds, to aid and support the recovery of this nation.”
