Certainly, donators as well as the members of NHB themselves have long waited for some pictures from Nepal. Despite the available donations, the Nepali government prevented the reconstruction for more than a year as they took 13 months to make new governmental building regulations. In these 13 months of standstill no public nor private building could be repaired nor reconstructed. What a sign of inability and indifference on part of the government! And when finally the green light was set for reconstruction, the monsoon started – this year with especially heavy rain – and the construction work had to be stopped again.

The first 50,000€ of donations could be transferred for the reconstruction of the schools in Sukute and Kadambas. The NHB was generously supported by the foundation of the company VPI from Neuburg/Danube. Reconstruction work should be finished by the beginning of 2017, so that pupils in Sukute will be able to move into their new school building. In Kadambas the earth quake spared only the new building. The small damages can be fixed and six classrooms can be used from the beginning of 2017. The reconstruction of the old school, which was completely destroyed, is planned for 2018.
