ECCA in cooperation with Swiss Humanitarian Aid, assessed the different villages of Lalitpur and Kavre on May 3rd. Self Help kits were distributed that contained helmets, wheelbarrows, shovels, ropes and other tools essential to dismantle and
manage the damaged houses in Khwokana, Bungmati and Dalchowki (southern Lalitpur) as per the results of the need assessment of communities conducted on 3rd and 4th of May 2015. Further assessments were conducted in Lamidanda, Keraghari and villages of Panchkhal following the distribution on May 3rd. The assessment concluded that there is a high need for such tools to restart the reconstruction of the houses damaged by the earthquake.
On May 4, 2015, 46 standard WATAS arrived from Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). With their arrival, the production rate has increased to 600+ liters of chlorine per day. 2436 bottles of 60ml of WATASOL were provided to the Swiss Embassy for distribution.
