2015 April Earthquake Relief Support

APPEAL TO SUPPORT THE VICTIMS OF DESTRUCTIVE EARTHQUAKE IN NEPAL – 25TH APRIL 2015

BACKGROUND

This is a very heartbreaking reality that on 25th April 2015 Saturday at 11:57AM, Nepal faced very destructive earthquake of 7.8 Richter scale which took over thousands of lives around the nation and uncountable destruction of houses, cultural heritages and road. The earthquake which started from 25th April, Saturday has still not been in balanced and the peoples are living in fear of their lives. Many other small rectors’ earthquake is still felt periodically everyday which has been taking away the breath of many people. Death till data so far has crossed 6000 and more details to come.

This unexpected earthquake has taken away the homes of many people and left them homeless. It is very depressing to see how people have to shelter in open grounds and street to under one cover with no food and water supply. Besides living in the fear of upcoming earthquakes, people have not been able to overcome the miserable death of their beloved ones. No related sources have been able to predict and provide accurate information on termination of this earthquake. People are now taking for shelter in the open sky because of the fear.

Our two organizations, Socio-Economic Welfare Centre for Energetic Women (EWC) and CanHelp Nepal is a non-profitable organization established to support the underprivileged people of our society. We have always been dedicated towards development of our society. With the current situation of the country, uncountable people are in need of immediate help.

The natural calamities like earthquake can occur anytime anywhere with no prior information. On 25th April 2015, the earthquake of 7.8 Richter in Nepal has mercilessly affected over 80 lakh population of Nepal with casualty of 6166 people, injured 13232 people and uncountable destruction of cultural heritages, government offices and houses.

It has mentally traumatized the people which will always remain as a nightmare to them. We all are also victim of it including visitors from different countries.

After all this destruction has occurred, realizing our responsibility we have started working to support to face the problem. Immediately after receiving generous offer by our CEO of Canhelp Australia, Mr. Graham Curry to raise a fund for the relief of the victims gave us a hope to wake up and start to fight the difficult situation together.

  • In this area, the packets of immediate relief item, 10kg of rice pack per family and 6 Tripaal(Canopy) suitable for 8 to 10 people are distributed.

As observed during the visit, almost all the houses of the village were damaged after earthquake so the villagers requested for a tripaal to live in. The overall situation of the village is very depressing but fortunately the villagers are growing potatoes which can help them to survive. They are requesting Tripaal to save their agricultural production for the monsoon, so the team decided to buy 100 tripaal for the villagers. Hope this tripaals will help them to save their head, food stuffs and survived animals.

The situation after the earthquake has still not settled yet. The media has still been reporting about the multiple aftershocks of below 5 Richter everyday that has increased terror within the people. Most of the people have not been able to start their normal life due to great losses of infrastructure and beloved ones. The rubble after earthquake has still not been able to clean for the people to start their regular life. As this is the time of crisis for the whole nation, the team has been vigorously working day and night.

As received the information from one of the staff of Milap Cooperative, Mr. Rajan Giri to support the villagers of Halle Kalika VDC, Ward number 1, 5 and 6 of Nuwakot district, the team visited the village to distribute the immediate relief items.

18th May 2015, Monday

After passing many days from the massive earthquake that hit Nepal on 25th April 2015, people started limping into the normal life until they knew another huge magnitude aftershock will hit the country again. On 12th May 2015, 6.8 Richter magnitude of aftershock again destroyed many houses, left hundreds of casualties and affected several areas in crisis.

Amongst several affected places, Kavrepalanchowk was in desperate need of help. In this period, our kind contributors from Huawei India helped us with Food, Tripaal and blankets from India under the leadership of Mr. Umesh Rauniyar (Huawei). With the support and encouragement of Mr. Umesh with friends and Mr. Ashok Shrestha from Community Development Relief Agency Banepa (CDRA), the team moved to the school to distribute the relief items for the children’s and teacher’s family. Following activities were carried out in the area:

  • Meet the principal and explain him about the relief items to be distributed in need basis so that no one returns empty hand.
  • Distinguished people from 9 wards into 9 different lines representing one family member from each family.
  • Prepared a Bucket food for each family. Buckets were supported by Mr. Ashok Shrestha of CDRA.
  • Distributed the relief items to the family. On the other side, the team also provided a packet of biscuits to the small children of the school.
  • Handed over the Tripaal and blankets to the Mr. Ganesh Parajuli, Principal of the school to run the school classes as almost all the building of the schools were damaged due to the earthquake. The blankets will be distributed by the school to the families as per their requirement.
  • Returned back to Kathmandu.

 

22nd May 2015, Friday

One amongst our four IT Education Centres established by CanHelp Nepal is located at Shree Bhuwoneshwori Lower Secondary School, Panchkhal, Kavre. The area is poorly affected by the earthquake. Information is received that several relief agencies have tried to help the people but the massive destruction is very hard to heal up. Any kind of help is appreciable in the situation.

In coordination with the principal of the school, Mr. Bal Bahadur Kunwar, the team visited the school with some relief items as much we can provide. Following activities were carried out in the area:

  • Meet the principal and teachers of the school and discuss the distribution of materials to the family in a need basis.
