AN ENGINEER is to fly out to Nepal for a second time to help those affected by a devastating earthquake.
Aakanksha Sadekar, from Aberdeen, was in Mumbai, India, when the first earthquake hit Nepal.
The 26-year-old decided to cut her holiday short and cross the border to help gather aid for those affected.
And former Robert Gordon University student Aakanksha, who recently flew back to the North-east, is now set to return to Nepal on Monday to help build homes for those affected.
The first 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on April 25 and as a result more than 8,000 people were killed and many more were injured.
Aakanksha has helped to form a group, named The Persistants, which is also made up of people from countries including India, Switzerland, France and Italy.
Aakanksha, who will stay in Nepal until June 27, said the group will use bamboo and corrugated steel to help build the homes, which are estimated to cost around £120 to build.
