Earthquake Relief Program: Mission 2
(Support the quake victims from Danda Gaun)

16/5/2015 – The situation was more worse than expected. We visited one of the highly affected villages (Danda Gaun VDC) of highly affected district Rasuwa. We didn’t find a single standing house apart from extremely few cemented houses at lower range. Few villages are completely swept down by landslides that followed the quakes. After a detail study, we chose four of the wards (ward number 6,7,8 and 9) from the upper side of Danda Gaun and couldn’t filter more.

During need analysis, the most demanding thing was relief food. So we have prepared this report as Mission 2 relief planning:

350 households (~1800 people) require rescue food for a month. In minimum, we need 10,500 kg of rice. There will be a 30 kg sack of rice which will cost NRs 1,100 per sack. In total, we need 350 sacks of rice costing NRs 3,85,000.

We want to make the support reach them within a day or two. So please hurry.

The district locals (who are already highly affected) have pledged to support the transportation charge. We need to raise NRs 3,85,000 (approx. $ 3,850) . To support, please deposit your preferred amount to:

Account Number: 119001636010
Bank Name: Rastriya Banijya Bank
Account Holder Name: Biplab Subedi
SWIFT: RBBA NPKA
Accountability assured. We have already published the report of Mission 1 done in Parbat as well.
Support of food for a month would help them seek out for alternatives afterwards. Thus, the idea is sustainable and it addresses the urgency.

Let’s act now! Let’s show that humanity still exists!
