A major earthquake has struck eastern Nepal, near Mount Everest, two weeks after more than 8,000 people died in a devastating quake. The Singapore arts community has set up several charity events to raise funds for those in need.
When The Mountains Called

When The Mountains Called is an exhibition by photographers from the international Kathmandu-based masterclass Kathmandu INSIDE:OUT (KIO). Originally conceived to be an exhibition showcasing works by photographers from Singapore, Nepal, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom who had participated in the masterclass, the exhibition has now taken on a new urgency as a platform to raise awareness and funds for the Nepalese people in the wake of the recent earthquakes in Nepal. The proceeds will go to Nepalese NGOs including Prisoners Assistance Nepal, Wildlife Conservation Nepal and Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) in aid of the humanitarian effort now underway in Nepal.
