Providing Support for Victims in Need
By Shreyans Tamang - Communication Officer
Bhuwan Singh Gurung with his wife.
“Earthquake is not in our control, and when it comes, leaves an unforgettable memory” recalls Bhuwan Singh Gurung of Ichhyakamana who lost his elder son in a landslide. He had started rebuilding his house but spent all his money on treating his wife for depression. He was only able to finish the foundation of his house.
Many poor families like Gurung continue living in temporary shelters made from CGI(Corrugated Galvanised Iron) and straw after the earthquake of 2015. Now with PHASE's support, he has finally completed building his house. “Even my wife is happy now,” says Gurung. Targetting nearly 500 vulnerable families who have not been able to build their house even after 4 years of the earthquake, PHASE has been providing building materials and technical support to help these families build a new earthquake-resilient house.
PHASE continues its rebuilding of earthquake-affected communities in Ichhyakamana and Jwalamukhi rural municipalities of Chitwan and Dhading districts. We have built more than 300 houses till now and are closer to achieving our goal.
