Earthquake news 12 July 2015

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported the WMT earthquake appeal. However the need in Nepal is great and on-going and WMT is committed to continue to fund raise to help the victims of the earthquake. If you are able to help by organising fund raising events, that would be wonderful. Please email us on info@wmt.org.uk or by post to our registered address: 57 Forest Edge, Buckhurst Hill, IG9 5AE. WMT has minimal overheads as we are all volunteers; all donations go directly to our registered partner organisations in Nepal to help those in need.

CBRS project manager, Krishna, and his team have been visiting clients and their families to assess their needs. About 50 homes have been damaged; some destroyed.

Aparna is running clinics from tents and has used money donated by WMT to buy food, medicines, blankets and mosquito nets for those left homeless.

Southern Lalitpur is one of the worst hit areas of Nepal; it is a mountainous region south of Kathmandu with few roads or infrastructure. The ECCA teams have been working in Southern Lalitpur along with other agencies such as the Swiss Humanitarian Agency (SHA). In many villages, 99% of homes have been destroyed or severely damaged and people have lost all their belongings including food, household items, bedding and the children’s school materials.
