The earthquakes and aftershocks that devastated Nepal in April, 2015 inflicted heavy damage on the Deboche nunnery. Some of the improvements already made will have to be redone. Of immediate concern are the residencies for the nuns and the Prayer Hall which sustained heavy damage.

The nuns were made homeless by the quakes, and providing them a safe and comfortable living space is a major first priority.
