Nima, Anuj and the Eutai Mala team are working on the needs in Gerkhu, Nuwakot district. Bishal has visited the village and meets regularly with the team to plan for our contributions to the educational needs of the children. Please follow them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eutaimalanepali.
Unfortunately the needs continue to be great. Children have gone back to school, but need textbooks, bags, stationary and uniforms. Many farmers have not planted their rice crops that need to be in the ground now before monsoon. They have lost their food stock, seed stock and tools, plus irrigation systems are damaged, farmland lays under rubble and hillsides are too unstable to plant on. These conditions will lead to food shortages and sever impact on farmer’s livelihoods. Over 70% of Nepalese are involved in the agricultural sector and it is critical to address these needs as soon as possible.
In the coming days I will update you on the relief work we have already carried out and our future plans. Thank you for your continued support.
