This is a community discussion about the earthquake relief and distribution. It's an egalitarian society, which means that if you give something to one person, everybody else expects the same.
When you are dealing with people who have lost everything you have to be very sensitive.
This is not a society which reveres elders. Everybody can speak up and they do. There is a very strong sense of community identity and staying close to the valley and making a living from it is essential.
