5 Homes Handover for 5 Families (updated on 19-11-2016)

Date: 2016-03-22

On behalf of EEF (Earthquake Emergency Fund) team:
5 newly built homes are handover today for the five families (30 members), who completely lost their homes from last terrible earthquakes in Nepal.
The families originally from the remotest places called Tipling VDC of Dhading near the Ganesh Himalayas. After everything lost they come down to Chyangli – 2, Awanda of Gorkha and they got homes over there. It’s by distance 74 km away of Pokhara.
Our team could build more homes for more families, because of very limit budget we could not do as we wanted. Still our relief aid program is ongoing…

At Chyangli Awanda Gorkha, there are 200 households living. These people are severely suffering from drinking water crisis!
Because of the earthquakes, they lost water spring and it is completely dried!! So they must carry up the water with water pots or jar from the river. It is at least 600 meter far below the lower village.
In monsoon season this river brings so dark and dirty water, still for them there is no other option to drink and use for their cattle.

Our EEF team is planning for this drinking water project:
First of all near the river, need to construct a WELL and strong huge-WALL around to protect it from the monsoon river hit. Pump the water from the well and collect it in the huge reserved water tank at the 1st village and distribute it to each family.

The villagers claimed about costing it sixty thousand dollars (60,000 $) in total. But if our team able to collect twenty thousand dollars (20,000 $); then we would buy all the necessary materials including all transportation, pay for the expert masons (builders), workers, engineer etc… And for the normal work the villagers would work as a volunteer. So our target is to collect as above mentioned budget.

Dear all,

EEF: Ongoing housing project currently to start building another home at Chalisedanda – 5, Mirkot VDC of Gorkha, by distance about 90 km away in the east of Pokhara. Where, there are 40 households are affected from the last earthquakes; 15 households are totally damaged and those families are living under bamboo shelters made by themselves. You know it does not last longer. The rest homes partly cracked, some parts fallen and some families even built homes for themselves. According to our field visit, for the 15 + (6 families from neighboring village) = 21 families are seriously in need a home.
As the government directed and earthquakes resistance home may cost easily 10k$ per home. Depending on the location, size, model and materials etc... If you built same home in the more remote areas will cost at least double.
Now; EEF housing project has received 4k through Dr. Susan Cummings Nicholson in Virginia, https://www.gofundme.com/2sudd8s?brandedshare=1&d=119616733
The government has just provided as a first part of money (50 thousand Rs.) for the each affected family to build a home, but we found some information, this money is not been used for homebuilding, even we someone told us that one of the families took the provided money of 50 thousand Rs, and gambled for 60 thousand Rs!

EEF team never provides cash directly to the families for homebuilding, but we bring all the necessary materials and involve ourselves to build it till it does not complete.

As we experienced; this is a fastest way to build home and no chance to misuse of the provided money…

Your donation is very welcome and highly appreciated. We as a small team but energetic and dedicated one to bring directly each your support and supplies to the real affected people and areas without any long and headache process between…

Special thanks to whom involved in this project, because of your support, at least 30 people have received homes!!

Currently being constructed a home at Chalisedanda – 5, Mirkot VDC of Gorkha, by distance about 101 km away in the east of Pokhara. On my previous information I mentioned details about the project. Mirkot is habitat nearly 35% of the indigenous Kumal people. Please, you may have a look more information and picture to click this link: https://www.facebook.com/prem.rai2#

EEF: Few weeks ago, our ongoing housing project had started to build a house at Chalisedanda – 5, Mirkot VDC of Gorkha.

The wall building is just completed and the rest work will be done in next two weeks. 

Updated on: 2016 Nov. 19, Saturday

What a great privilege for us to hand-over a beautiful house to the family of Jit Bdr Kumal at Mirkot Gorkha. He has two children and a lovely wife. They had lost their house from the last earthquakes hits in Nepal. They were living under temporarily tin roofed and bamboo bar shelter for nearly two years! Including his family, there are seven other families are still living in a heart-rending circumstances and at a same place.

Building this house; financially and physically supported by Dr. Susan Cumming Nicholson in Virginia and Mr. Barkley entirely dedicated in the field; - for painting, cleaning, encouraging people around.

I did a question to one of these senior citizen “why don’t you rebuild your house at the same place? He said; first reason, he does not want to look back to this place, because he had such a terrific experienced during the earthquakes hit, in front of his eye, dramatically his house started falling part by part and within a seconds it changed into rubble and he could see only the smoky dust covered the whole sky!!

Second reason; they have no budget to rebuild!!

EEF’s goal is rebuild other seven houses as well, because they are in a same need and situation. Each house costs to complete $6K.


Your donation is very welcome and highly appreciated. We as a small team but energetic and dedicated one to bring directly each your support and supplies to the real affected people and areas without any long and headache process between… PNT and EEF’s banking details are:
