Nepal is receiving help

As reported on 3rd May, the helpers of NHB were the first to bring food in Sindhupal District, 80 km away from Kathmandu. In the meantime our coordinators have been in this area several times to distribute food there. People are very grateful for NHB.

The population of 17 villages there have already received 55 tons of rice, 1.4 of tons lentils, 1.7 tons of salt, 1250 litre oil and more than 1,000 first-aid-kits. More than 8,300 houses with over 30,000 people have been benefitting from these goods so far. The distribution will be continued soon. More than 25,000 € have already been spent for it.

According to our Nepali coordinators, the greatest problem is the absence of accommodations respectively tents as it has been raining nearly daily the last couple of days. For this reason NHB is sending tents on its way to Nepal in the next few days.

Sad facts

Shyam Pandit has sent first numbers of casualties in Sindhupal District along with information on the food deliveries. Unbelievable bad numbers which show the dimension of this catastrophe:

8219 of 8343 houses in 20 villages and towns have been destroyed, which makes a quota of over 95%! The earth quake has killed 416 people, among 57 children.
