Shelter after the Nepal earthquake

In Bhattedande village there are 110 homes destroyed, forcing more than 500 people to live under makeshift shelters of plastic, tin, tarpaulins and anything they can find.  The rains and storms have been coming, making for very unpleasant living conditions and possibilities of disease outbreaks. With unstable land after the quake, there is the risk of landslides in the hilly environment.

They face a massive uncertainty and are not expecting any government assistance to come soon. Village leaders are doing their best to make sure any sick and elderly are fine, and trying to keep people calm in this time of stress.

Bishnu Shrestha the program manager for the dental and sanitationn programs has compiled a page of photos showing some of the shelters, access here.

Fading eastern light over western NSW plains on re-entry to Sydney.  Tough visit to Nepal this time. Struggling economy, massive inflation, increasing suicide rates, fewer and fewer jobs. Small wonder the drain of young people coursing out of the country, mainly aged 18-30 years, continues to grow. On average 3-4000 per day.  Villages are emptying. Schools are closing due to falling numbers of students.  Families are breaking up, leaving the parents to grow into either a lonely retirement in Nepal or face moving to another country where they are with their kids and grandkids but without their daily neighbours and local community.  It’s great to see so many beautiful Nepalese working and helping in Australia and other countries, and seeking opportunities they can’t find in their home country but the social, structural and political fracturing back in Nepal is deepening. The next few years will be very interesting.  Namaste!!🙏🏽 🙏🏽
