Paul Walker's brother flew to Nepal to aid earthquake relief efforts

Paul Walker's brother Cody recently traveled to Nepal to offer aid to those affected by last month's (Apr15) devastating earthquake in a bid to continue his late brother's legacy.

The late Fast & Furious star founded the Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW) foundation in 2010 to help those affected by natural disasters following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and his younger brother Cody, a paramedic, took over as the charity's brand manager following Walker's car crash death in 2013.


He headed to Nepal with a team of aid workers from ROWW after the first quake hit on 25 April (15) and Cody reveals the group felt the late actor's presence "every step of the way".


Cody Walker, who filled in for his dead brother in scenes for Furious 7, tells People magazine, "He's totally there, there is no doubt. Paul would have jumped on a plane and asked questions later, and been there a day before we were there. That's who he was. He was fearless."


More than 8,000 people were killed in the tragedy last month (Apr15), while at least 54 others died in a huge aftershock, which rocked Nepal on Tuesday (12May15).
