Nepal Earthquake

Earthquake Relief May 2015

TT and Healthabitat worked with the villagers in our project villages during May 2015, and according to the project visit report:

Immediate action – achieved by June, thanks to the village teams and donated funds

  • Shelter to get families through the wet season – June, July, August monsoon rains.
  • Restore sanitation – local water collection, storage and supply, and the safe disposal of human waste.
  • Building places for families to store, prepare and cook food.
  • Supplying personal health items – bucket, jug, towels, soap, toothbrush and paste, food preparation items, mosquito nets and bed sheets.

Action for the long term – after the monsoon time

  • Demolition of damaged houses, clearing of sites, re-using materials and preparing for rebuilding after the wet season.
  • Providing families with technical and financial support to build earthquake resistant homes.

More information regarding the earthquake and activities in the News.

In 2018 we continue to raise funds through the Nepal Rotary Village Development Project to help the villagers in their recovery.  Funds can be donated online and Australian donors will receive a tax receipt.

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 ...
