EQ RELIEF MATERIALS @ Lisankhu

On May 9th, a team from ECCA left for ward 8 and 9 of Lisankhu V.D.C., Sindhupalchowk with relief materials along with Mr. Gopal Bhandari, a local from the village. The site for the distribution was selected keeping his request in consideration. None of the relief teams had previously reached the village.

ECCA distributed food ration (a sack of rice, salt, lentils, oil and sugar) as well as 20 Tarpaulins and 30 tents to 50 households.

“When I reached my village a few days after the earthquake, I was saddened to see the devastation. I was immensely bothered by the fact that no help had reached my village. My heart filled with a desire to help them as much as I could”, Mr. Gopal said.

“I was fortunate to get help from ECCA”, he said. “I accompanied the ECCA team and was present during the distribution. Their (the local villagers) smiles satisfied me greatly. I was happy to be able to do something for my family as well as all the villagers there”.

The locals departed with warm smiles and blessings. Receiving relief materials for the first time gave the villagers hope and helped them to start thinking beyond the destruction.
