Supplying household and hygiene packs

TT worked with the village committees to buy and compile items for household hygiene packages.  The villagers advised on necessary items to help them improve their daily lives.  Ninety packs were distributed in Bhattedanda village, one per household and another 90 packs were distributed to households in Arubot and Dandagaun villages.

Each pack provides some essentials for washing and hygiene, cooking, and insect protection: bucket and jug, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, towels, chopping board and knife, and mosquito nets.  Bed sheets were also provided. Supplies were bought in Kathmandu and Dhulikhel, and sorted and assembled by a troop of very willing and active helpers of all ages including the members of the village relief project committee.

Women have been using scraps of plywood for chopping and preparing food, a risky practice due to the chemicals involved in making plywood.  The mosquitoes have already arrived and will increase once the rains start. Immediately after receiving the packs, nets were rigged up in the temporary homes which have no screens, and children and clothes were being washed.

We hope that these packs will help to keep families free from the risk of infections and diseases during the warm and wet months of the monsoon.

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!!🙏🏽 🙏🏽
