This shelter was made as a makeshift healthpost for the people of Lamatar VDC adjoining Kavre. This healthpost provides care for 380 households with a rough estimated population of 1800 people. The locals have planned to shift the medicines and the necessary commodities to the new shelter by today so that it can resume services until a more permanent structure is built by the government.
The prototype will be offered to different VDC Health Posts if they want to use them as transitional shelters until permanent ones are built.
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.
