Earthquake Update

During the spring 2016, once the danger of aftershocks had receded, we were able to start work in the remote Nubri area of Nepal where 985 houses, scattered among 12 villages, were badly damaged during the earthquakes in 2015. Nubri is north of Gorkha (the epicentre of the first earthquake) and abuts the border of Tibet. There is no access for vehicles and it is a 5 day walk to the nearest road and transportation. This self reliant community started to rebuild their houses but need help to complete their roofing.

In the aftermath of the earthquakes the community were given 18 sheets of tin per household. In reality each house needed a minimum of 12 extra sheets which Help Tibet undertook to supply. The most efficient way to deliver the tin is by helicopter and since April 2016 Help Tibet has chartered 13 flights. The last 4 loads are due to be delivered imminently; this will complete the programme within the 2 year deadline originally set by the trustees.

As the community has no permanent health centre in the vicinity we also take the opportunity to send up regular supplies of Tibetan medecines on the helicopter for our Tibetan practitioner. The mobile clinic visits each village on a regular basis treating more than 1000 patients on each circuit.
