On May27th, 2015 a small group of people in coordination of Sandesh Poudel, Research manager at SOCF USA headed towards the eastern part of the Kathmandu Valley, focusing on earthquake victims in Goganpani, Dhading District, Nepal.
Most of the houses had been destroyed and the people are living under tents. The people were psychologically ill thinking that another big earthquake might hit Nepal and destroy what remained of their village.
With the help of additional funding from WeHelpNepal we are planning additional deliveries of toilets which prevent the spread of disease and provide both sanitation and dignity to those suffering such great loss do to the earthquakes. The villagers work with us to do the work as they are very capable when given the resources. We thank all of the donors and the WeHelpNepal volunteers for their assistance in expanding our project. Preventing disease as the monsoon rains come is crucial to the recovery of our country.
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.
