Summary

The earthquake in Nepal on the 25th April, 2015 has shattered the lives of millions of people destroying homes, fields and livelihoods. Our staff have also suffered but they are relatively lucky. The district of Sindalpulchowk, to the north of Kathmandu,has suffered more than most areas. Statistically there have been more deaths than anywhere else, whole villages have disappeared, yet it is still not receiving much government support. The Nepal Trust will concentrate in this area.

Challenge

The earthquake has destroyed villages, farmland and livelihoods. The death rate is the highest in Nepal and some areas are yet to be identified. Many people are seriously injured and have yet to receive any outside help so it is expected the death rate will continue to rise. Food is in short supply where food stocks, fields and domestic farm animals have been destroyed. Houses lie in ruins and must be made weather tight before the winter in this cold, high region. Urgent help will save lives.

Solution

Initially the Trust will work with medical volunteers from the Nidan Hospital in Lalitpur to provide medicines and emergency first aid. We will supply the logistical support and purchase the medicines and other supplies that have to be replaced to the hospital. The Trust will purchase and distribute tents, food, clean water and filters to ensure people are fed and kept warm particularly during the rainy season and the winter. Other priorities will emerge over time.

Long-Term Impact

Villages and people will get back to a normal way of life - the quicker the better. They will get back to the daily routines of work and farming, caring for their families, going to the temple and meeting and caring for their friends and families. Life is hard in these high mountain areas but the people have hope and ambition that has been temporarily destroyed. Our aim is to restore that hope and ambition.
