Post earthquake reconstruction in Nepal

TT is grateful to Surya Lama in Nepal and his teams for remaining committed to helping the villagers still homeless after the earthquakes of April and May 2015.

Nine more families last week moved in to new homes, built with  support from TT’s donors, and according to the Nepal government’s earthquake building code.  The villagers also require the Nepal Government’s subsidy for reconstruction.

These families were recipients of the village toilet program run from 2007 under the leadership of Paul Pholeros. TT will ensure all remaining poor villagers – 12 more families –  receive assistance to rebuild their homes and their lives.  Our target is to have them rehoused by March 2020.

Donations gratefully received and can be made at the Rotary donations page.

Uni of Newcastle team last year in Arubot.... folks, thanks to Surya at left, TT can continue to support the reconstruction of lost homes. The villagers welcome you to return and see how people are rebuilding their lives. Namaste and Laso!! ...

Thanks Australian Dental Association for these magnificent flowers. It was an honour to be invited by the ADA to share information about TT’s Nepal activities, with dentists young and not so young. ...

One of the recipients of the latest round of funds raised by TT’s helpers to support post-earthquake reconstruction in Nepal. Arjun and his family have lived in a rudimentary shelter for more than 4 years; our subsidy has allowed him to finally build this small home, completed this week. Arjun is of the BK caste, considered one of the lowest and untouchable castes. One of my always-memories is the moment his piercing eyes of deep gratitude melted my insides as I handed him the key to his family toilet in 2014. Dignity. ...

Young Prem, all materials to this building site are brought in by manual labour ...
