A former refugee from Nepal, Hom Pradhan, now studying as a junior at Essex Technical High School, U K, is using his artistic talent to help earthquake victims in his home country. By selling his artwork, Pradhan plans to raise funds to help earthquake victims get basic supplies such as food and clothing, until they are rehabilitated by the government.
Much of Pradhan’s artwork depicts scenes from the refugee camp in Nepal where he lived up until 3 years ago. Upon hearing of the devastation caused by the earthquake, Pradhan knew that he had to help. He has managed to raise quite a sum in aid of his country’s earthquake victims.
