Post Earthquake Situation in Rural Nepal is Getting Worse

SINDUPALCHOWK, NEPAL

After providing shelter for victims of the earthquake in Kathmandu, our team is now moving towards areas outside the valley.

According to the official numbers from the Government of Nepal, 2071 people have lost their lives in the district of Sindhupalchowk and more than 648 people have suffered from injuries due to the devastating earthquake that has recently occurred in Nepal.

We currently have 10 volunteers that are working hard to assist the people in Sindhupalchowk. The aim of our team is to provide the basic needs of the people in this district which will be adequate for the next month or a month and a half. We also aim to provide medical support. Some of the basic needs at the moment includes food, tents, blankets or quilts (if tents won’t be available green house plastics, thermal plastics), mats or profiles, medications, sanitations and cloths.

Based on the first number of donations from Denmark, the team has bought bagged foods (as shown in the images below), as the risk of Hepatitis and Cholera are high in local stored food.

The current situation is worsening and the safety in Sindhupalchowk  is compromised. Many people are still missing their relatives and friends.

You can now help AHC with the necessary support on our front page in order to aid the people in need in Nepal. The ressources will be transferred directly to our team of volunteers that is currently active in Sindhupalchowk.
