Her home in the tiny village of Kavnepalanchowk has been flattened and she has nowhere else to go.
Now staff at downtown Woolworths, where Ashma is a familiar face in the service section, are helping raise money for her grandmother and her grandmother�s village.
On Saturday, they held a fundraising sausage sizzle, organised by fellow Woolworths staff member Heather Haines.
Funds raised will go towards building a new home for Ashma�s grandmother and helping others in the village.
In Nepal, where families gradually build their houses as they can afford it, all their money is tied up in their home.
�Once it�s lost, it�s lost,�� Ashmar said and there is no insurance coverage.
Her grandmother cannot get to Ashma�s mother�s home in Kathmandu, which has also been badly damaged, because the roads are blocked.
The appeal is not a Woolworths project, but an initiative by store staff.
Anyone wanting to help can drop a donation into the store this week.
