Gaku Homma

After that two-day trip, Homma went back in mid-June to bring in more supplies.

“After seven days later, Nepali Airport, so much stuff,” he said.

Homma brought 150 kilos worth of equipment from Denver, including concrete cutters, rocking climbing helmets and construction gloves through a partnership he established 10 years ago with the Nepal Rangers.

He stayed there for a week.

“More psychological support,” Homma said.

Along with help the Nepal Army Rangers and the We’re With You program, Homma helped provide meal services to those in need. The groups also provided psychological support in the form of Aikido and clean up services to help life children’s spirits up.

They also provided water.

His efforts are mostly self-funded, but he has received donations.

Homma hand carries all of the supplies himself into Nepal, and plans on returning in September.
