Flood Victims in Nepal

By Churna Bahadur Chaudhari | Executive Director - BASE

A Success Story: Ms. Amrita, excited to resume school and is stress free of effects of the flood (Project No. #29173)

The severe flood disaster of August 13, 2017 in Dang district resulted in the loss of human life and the destruction of property in different parts of western Nepal. Among those municipalities that were severely affected was Phoolwari VDC (now Tulsipur Sub Metropolitan ward no 13). The source of the flood water was from two main rivers in Dang, River Babai and River Tuikhola. The flooding interfered with the day-to-day activities of the people living in Phoolwari VDC. The community suffered and faced difficulty and hardship because of the damaged culverts and roads, irrigational cannels, social structures, schools, community buildings, and even homes. Ms. Amrita, the daughter of Ait Ram and Narayani, was living in Phoolwari VDC when the flooding occurred. She is 12 years old and in Grade 7 attending Ambikeshori Secondary School in Ambapur. There are 4 members in her family including herself. Her father, mother and her elder brother who is in Grade 8.

The flood of Tuikhola brought damage to their house, their store, their clothes, grains and even about 2 hectors of a maize plantation. They had nothing to eat and no place to stay. Her mother Narayani said, "I could not think of what to do at that time. My husband was away earning a livelihood for our family. I was alone, and I needed to manage the situation at that time. We felt so depressed and I suffered to bring up my two children. My Children didn't go to school for 2 weeks. Their school uniform was swept away by the flood. We don't have the grains to feed us. A fellow village sister is supporting me for food and our community leader (Mahatawa) is offering me a place to stay. I have not received any support from the government or other relief agencies except a 25 kg bag of rice provided by the Red Crossed Society in Nepal with the help of Parliament Member Mr. Dilli Bahadur Chaudhary." She added that her husband sent her some money and they managed to buy some food and clothing. Backward Society Education (BASE) also provided stationery (note books, pen, inks, geometric box and dictionary) to the children. “My little girl was very happy when she got the support” she said. Though the support seems small, it encouraged her daughter to read and write and continue to resume her studies as usual.
