Development Alliance distributed CGI sheets to more than 100 earthquake affected families in Kharelthok and Koshidekha VDCs of Kavre district to build their temporary shelters. Helping quake victims for building temporary shelters, as our first stage of housing support, has now been complete. The shelters they built keep them safe from adverse weather and wild animals until they are able to build permanent shelter.
Development Alliance provided support to build a hostel kitchen for Mentally Disabled Children Rehabilitation Centre in Kharelthok, Kavre district of Nepal who were heavily affected by the mega earthquake. There are currently 21 children living in this hostel. The financial support we provided to the centre was around 25% of the total construction cost of the structure. As reported by the Centre officials, they used the money we sent for the completion with concrete roofing of the building. We also supported for one month food supplies for the children.
Helping Nepal Earthquake Victims
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
This is our pleasure to share with all our supporters and well wishers that the Charity Dinner organised on the 8th of August 2015 at Woolwich, London has been a successful event. The event was organised to raise fund for our Rehabilitation of Earthquake Affected Children and Households in Nepal (REACH Nepal) programme to help needy households rebuild their houses. The credit for the success of the event goes to all our those supporters who attended the event and equally those supporters who donated but could not attend due to their pre-planned busy schedules. Without contributions of you all, the event would not have been successful.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to Mr. Mathew Pennycook, MP for Greenwich and Woolwich, for accepting our request and attending the event as our Chief Guest and his supportive words he expressed during his speech.
We are thankful the most to all our supporters who attended the dinner event or who made donations towards the event even were not able to attend.
We would also like to thank Koffees & Kream, Woolwich, London for providing venue and facilities for free and serving amazing dinner to our participants.
All our volunteers also deserve our heartful thanks for all their hard work which made the event happen.
THANK YOU ALL.
