Some food relief arrives
Some donations have been coming in to Bhattedanda village directly from overseas donors. The village teams and womens group work carefully to ensure there is equal distribution of the rice among the families. Fortunately the villagers can still access some vegetables from the fields, however many animals including goats, chicken and the income-generating buffaloes, were killed in the quake.
The information is coming slowly from Prem, one of the village leaders, and from Bishnu the program manager, who have supplied the photos. Bishnu’s photo report can be accessed here.
