Nepal: Earthquake relief for people of Damadhunga

Posted on 25 Nov, 2014 by GFA

Damadhunga is a three hours drive to the west of Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. Due to the two earthquakes on 25 April and 12 May 2015, most of the Damadhunga villagers  lost their houses and family members. Mirzas Roshan, the husband of a GFA staff member, proposed the first emergency project after he conducted a needs assessment among community members. By now, the total amount of EUR 3,382 has been spent on three sustainable earth-bag toilets in Amot village and 15 temporary toilets in Damadhunga and surrounding villages. Additionally, he and his friends distributed 100 hygiene packs to each family and provided basic hygiene orientation.

This project is undertaken by Miraz Roshan, husband of a GFA staff member in Kathmandu, Nepal
