After a tough year for the Nepalese people, through earthquakes and fuel shortages, a visit from David Beckham thrilled a nation. His visit has made headline news and hopefully raised awareness of Nepal to the world that it is ready to welcome visitors.
Nepal really depends on tourism, travelling to Nepal will be one of the biggest contributions you can make to benefit the people and economy of this wonderful holiday destination.
Unicef blog: David Beckham visits children in Nepal with Unicef, six months after the earthquake. David’s visit to Nepal is part of an upcoming BBC film where he goes on a journey to play seven games in all of the seven continents around the world. “I’m here to shine a light on how Unicef helps children recover after a disaster hits,” David said. “Unicef has built schools like this one to make sure a generation of children affected by the earthquake don’t miss out on their education. Children who’ve lost parents and friends, or seen their homes destroyed, now have somewhere to learn, play and talk about what happened to them. They can be kids again.”
