Victims in Kavre ‘thankful’ for tents

- NAGENDRA ADHIKARI, Kavre

May 10, 2015-

On that fateful day of April 25 when the Great Earthquake devastated many parts of the country, Chyangba Tamang of Kashikhanda-15 in Kavre had just returned home after undergoing throat surgery.

After the complex surgery, doctors had advised him to take precautions against dust, smoke and cold. But Chyangba and his family were compelled to live under the open sky after their house got demolished in the Great quake. Now two week’s after the quake, Chyangba and his wife Kanchimaya are glad to finally receive some food items, blankets and tarpaulins.

“We thank the generous donors from the bottom of our hearts for distributing the relief materials in our area”, said Kanchimaya, adding that they now have enough space to keep the patient cozy, comfortable and away from dust and grime as advised by the government.

Similarly, Sanumaya BK of quake affected Darimbot village felt as if she got everything after getting a tarpaulin. BK is also living with three of her children under the open sky.

“I would like to thank the team involved in providing relief materials in our area,” said BK, adding that even though it may be temporary, she has finally got a place to live now. Lions Club of Kavre and Chachan Group, among others, are distributing relief materials (blankets, tarpaulins, food and medicines) to the people in quake-hit areas of Kashikhanda-14 and 15 in Kavre district.

Meanwhile, various cooperatives have distributed food and other essential supplies to 75 households in quake-affected areas of Kashikhanda-14. They have also distributed tarpaulins to 15 Dalit households in the area.

Moreover, a team of doctors with the America Nepal Medical Foundation ran a mobile heath camp at Kashikhanda-15 recently and cured various health problems people of Piplatar and Darimbot were suffering from in the wake of the massive earthquake.
