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.
