We Help Nepal is supporting Madhu Acharya, a long time community radio producer, build a station in Barpak, Gorkha. The radio station will be used as a community resource center featuring local news and community led entertainment. Today he got his permit to move forward with the station!
Here's his post:
Finally some good news. We have secured the license for Radio Barpak at the epicentre of April 25th Earthquake. Still some bureaucratic process to be completed but we are more or less ready for the launch of the radio station. Thank you all for your support and motivation. It would not have been possible with out your support. Hope to be on air within a month.. Will keep you posted! Will personally send each and everyone of you for your contribution with a thank you letter soon.
Relief aid, while well intentioned, often ends up in the pockets of corrupt local bureaucrats and/or multinational contracts, with very little reaching the people that actually need it. Ensure that your contributions reach those in need.
