The world has pretty much forgotten about the victims of Nepal’s devastating earthquake of April 2015. A five-month-old blockade imposed by India has caused severe fuel shortages and compounded the problems of the Nepalese.
But life has to go on. And reconstruction work too – thanks to faithful hands like the National Mission Commission of Nepal (NMCN).
It is encouraging and inspiring to see NMCN’s commitment and contribution in serving the people of Nepal after the earthquake, beginning with providing immediate relief and now moving on to longer-term needs.
Our co-mission partner Ram Prasad Shrestha reports that in the final week of March they distributed 166 bundles of coloured zinc sheets to 83 families in Gotikhel, Lalitpur.
“They will put up the shelter whenever they have additional funds or material available,” said Ram Prasad, who is NMCN executive director.
Likewise, we have distributed 150 bundles of coloured zinc sheets to 50 households in Simle, Dhading.
“Now we are constructing the earth bag house in Dhading, which is a model house. Once this house is completed, we will construct one in Lalitpur district as well,” he said.
Please continue to keep in prayers the appointed relief coordinator for NMCN and the team involved in both fundraising as well as building the houses.
