Following the devastating earthquakes in Nepal of April and May 2015, many people fled their homes high in the mountains as roads and villages disappeared.
Many of these people fled to the lower mountain belts where they settled on the slopes of the mountains in small make-shift camps, where they were living in appalling conditions without any support unable to make a living.
In response to these needs, in July 2015, Cordaid together with Nepalese partners Parivartan Patra started providing WASH, livelihood and protection support to 500 families in 4 camps in the Rasuwa district.
We trained the people in camp management, built decent water and sanitation facilities, we organized hygiene promotion activities, provided mental health care (through partner TPO) and developed their vocational skills ensuring the restoration of their livelihood.
