The issue of water in Nepal one year after the earthquake is of real concern for many of the communities Caritas has been speaking to. In the first community we went to in Thokarpa neither the school nor the health centre had water.
One year after Nepal earthquake Thiramaya will receive a new earthquake-proof home in which she will have access to safe drinking water and sanitation facilities.
Caritas will invest €36.4 million over the next three years in helping Nepal’s earthquake survivors as the country marks the first anniversary of the disaster. A major focus of the global confederation’s work will be on providing good quality housing.
Six months ago, two devastating earthquakes hit Nepal, causing widespread destruction. Caritas Nepal, together with the global Caritas network, has been working tirelessly with families and communities as they recover and rebuild from this devastating event.
Through sheer ingenuity and determination, Caritas teams navigated their way around steep, windy roads on the country’s iconic mountainside to help Nepalese communities most in need.
