“Now I can keep my all grain and harvest in the house, and all the family members are together!” This is the report from a farmer in Nuwakot district, where 88% of the homes were destroyed in Nepal’s 2015 earthquakes.
Hope for Nepal used a grant from GlobalGiving to rebuild homes destroyed in the quake. After delays from last year’s fuel situation and a shortage of materials, villagers began to see frames go up last March. The project is finally complete, and 120 people were directly impacted, with 20 homes rebuilt. Sixteen are located in Nuwakot district, two in Dhading, and two in Gorkha. Some damaged homes were also repaired.
The village of “35 kilos” was chosen for most of the homes, because of the destruction there and the lack of help from outside. Beneficiaries contributed their own resources to make their houses more beautiful and strong.
This is what the homeowners say:
“We are recovering now from the greatest loss by earthquake that we had – we lost our house and other things but now we have a house to be in!”
“Now I am in my own home, not in the temporary tent. Life is safe and protected.”
THANK YOU for your generous support of rebuilding efforts in Nepal!
