Badalgaun, Kavre, another project site of ECCA received relief materials on May 9th in the form of tools for the construction of shelter. The relief materials consisted of a bundle of corrugated GI sheets (6 sheets in one bundle), hammer, saw, wire and nails for each family. The relief materials were distributed to a total of 250 households in cooperation with Swiss Humanitarian Agency (SHA).
On May 7, ECCA supported shelter – CGI Sheets for 300 households of ward 3 in Gairibisauni, Kavrepalanchwok.
“We are very thankful for receiving all these tools. These tools have helped us in the reconstruction of our houses in the long run. With these, we feel that we are already one step closer in building our new houses”, a villager said with a small smile.
With 90% of the village damaged by the earthquake, people in earthquake affected rural areas have been traumatized. Many villagers haven’t even begun to think beyond their current predicament. ECCA hopes that with these tools, the villagers will be enabled to start the construction of proper shelter before the start of rainy season.
To increase support for our initiation and intensify the relief activities, we have also initiated a project in the website of Global Giving, an online fundraising platform. People all over the world with internet access can visit the project page Support Nepal Earthquake Relief and donate.
