Conscience International Program Director for Southeast Asia Richard Sarker has been in Nepal this month assessing damaged and destroyed communities following the 7.8 earthquake that claimed thousands of lives in recent weeks. Although most aid agencies are focusing in and around Kathmandu, he observed, few are addressing the equal need of those affected by the earthquake in outer, poorer regions.
In Hetauda, in the Makhawnpur district, about 67 miles south of Kathmandu, Conscience International is partnering with a local community development organization to help restore some order and provide comfort by committing to help in the rebuilding of 50 houses for 50 affected families. So many more need our help. As funding is provided, even more families can be assisted.
Watch the short video and see what has happened to these families who have lost their homes and in many cases their livestock, goats, and chickens—the source of their livelihood.
