Sultan Jessa: Earthquake damages Child Haven home in NepalBy Sultan Jessa

CORNWALL, Ontario – The Maxville-based headquarters of Child Haven International has been inundated with calls since a devastating earthquake hit Nepal where the organization has a home.

The massive earthquake has killed more than 5,000 people and the death toll keeps rising rapidly.

Government officials say the death toll could rise to 10,000 when reports from rural areas are received.

Child Haven’s home is located in Aur Bari, a suburb of the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu.

“We hope the damage is only minor,” said Bonnie Cappuccino, who with her husband Fred and others, founded the international organization more than 30 years ago. “Many of the children are quite scared but they are being well cared for.”
