Emergency Flood Relief

Call for Emergency Flood Relief Aid, please support.

The heavy rain and flooding in Nepal over the last few weeks, due to the Monsoon, has not really reached our ears as we bask in summer temperatures of around 23 degrees here in Ireland.

We have received news from our Nepal colleagues that 78 houses in the Terai district have been totally damaged due to constant rain and flooding. 74 houses have been partially damaged. The following images are of families we support in Manara Village, whose homes have been destroyed.

Manara is one of villages which is part of our  Village Alive Programme  supported by Irish Aid.

Our work is focused in the Terai district of Nepal and so this is unsettling for us. Some of our village Self Help Group (SHG) members’ homes have been destroyed and damaged. Our SHG members support, encourage and assist other villagers who are struggling. They are a lifeline in the community.

If you would like to contribute towards rebuilding these homes, please make a donation here  and state Flood Relief Aid.
