Latest update from Nepal beneficiaryBy Administrator
Foundation Beyond Belief recently received an update from Renu Sharma, President of Women's Foundation of Nepal, the beneficiary of our Humanist Disaster Recovery Drive follow the 7.8 magnitude earthquake on April 25, 2015.
According to Sharma, they are currently supporting 700 people with food and shelter and have organized themselves into three units. They will deploy these teams to Sindhupalchowk (where 1,500 people were killed) Bhaktapur and Kavre districts. They are focused in distributing tarps/tents and building toilets. She said they are starting to see diarrhea.
They are also looking into purchasing tin roofs because they are receiving requests for them from those impacted by the disaster. One of the benefits of tin roofs is that they able to be used long-term after the immediate crisis is over. Tin roofs are frequently used for roofing in Nepal.
FBB continues to raise funds for those impacted by the Nepal earthquake at our HDR Drive donation page.
