Nepalese People Helping Other Nepalese People,
Helped Out By Friends from Around the World
We are very proud of the fact that we conducted the first scientifically-designed survey of the earthquake survivors after the disaster that showed exactly how they were living and what services they knew they needed in order to get back on their feet. Our humanitarian services are designed to fill the needs that the earthquake survivors expressed in the survey. We hope you will take the time to read about the survey by CLICKING HERE.
OUR HUMANITARIAN WORK
Before the Earthquakes
Promoting Education by Helping to Build Two Schools in Isolated Areas
Immediately After the Earthquakes
The Worst Devastation Was in Isolated Mountain Areas. Entire Villages Were Completely Destroyed
In these Isolated Mountain Areas, Homeless People from Several Villages Assembled Hoping for International Aid that Was Slow to Arrive.
We distributed Scarce Supplies Like Tarpaulins and Blankets to Help People Make Some Sort of Shelter
This Woman was Living in the Remains of her Animal Shed
We Organized 100 Nepalese Volunteers to Build Emergency Shelters for Elderly/Handicapped People in these Isolated Villages. The Village Elders Determined Who Would Receive the Valuable Help Since Basically Everyone Was Homeless at that Time. The Building Materials were Donated by the International Friends of Community Service of Nepal
Madhav Met and Coordinated with the Government and International Relief Committees to Advocate for Villages who Had Not Yet Received Aid
Then He Reported Back to the Village Elders that Help Was on Its Way
He Also Reassured the Frustrated and Hungry Villagers Who Had Lost Everything
Meanwhile, Back in the City, We Kept an Entire Orphanage of 30 Children Alive While they Were Forced to Live Under a Tarpaulain for Six Months. 30% of the City Was Homeless, so Finding a Rental for 30 Children and Their Caretakers was Impossible. Finally, Madhav was Able to Arrange Secure Housing for Them and We Continued to Support Them for Two More Years Until They Were Able to Be Placed in a Government Orphanage.
We Began Organizing Micro-Business Seminars to Help Stimulate Economic Recovery
