Running water in taps: Reason for Happiness

Posted: June 26, 2017

Our life took a very big turn after the earthquake. We had to struggle a lot for water. We not only got into rows but also we got into physical fights many time; for water.” Uma Devi Neupane

 

Uma Devi Neupane, a member of Kajigaun Water User Committee, is a single women who lives with her son at Kajigaun, Chaimale ,Dakxhinkali. Water is precious for the community people of Kajigaun and she has taken the responsibility to distribute the water in her community.

The worst natural disaster: April 2015 Nepal Earthquake also known as the Gorkha Earthquake, had killed lots of human life and did lots of destruction in Nepal. Likewise, the ecstasy of community people of Kajigaun was also ceased by the same earthquake.

Months passed, the aftershocks of the earthquake ended but the effects of the earthquake made their life harder. Many people had already started living normal lives again but it was not the same with the case of the people in Kajigaun. What actually happened was, after the earthquake, the water source which they were using dried up.  The tap in the picture is the same tap which was dry for almost a year. The reason behind this was termination in the flow of spring water.

"Since I'm very old and I'm also suffering from asthma, I couldn't go to my neighbor's toilet as often as I wanted to due to difficulty in walking. But now with the support of CIUD it's easy for me to use my own toilet anytime.”


Safe drinking water at doorstep!!

Posted: June 25, 2017

"All our problems regarding drinking water has ended, we will be taking care of our water supply scheme to make it sustain for very long so that our great grand children will drink the water from the same water supply scheme and we will not have to face the similar crisis as we faced before.”: Bijula Giri

Bijula Giri, vice chairperson of Dhobikhola water supply scheme, Godavari, is the active member of the user committee. Out of many affected water sources post 2015 earthquake, Dhobikhola Tin Dhare Muhan Water Supply Scheme was one. It was the only spring water source for the community with 61 households. The total numbers of beneficiaries are 370. The source of water shifted downward from pre-existing source and the discharge was low. Before earthquake also people used to rely on the same source which was open without any protection and they had lined up pipes from source to households in a haphazard way. It was time consuming and difficult to fetch water from the source to the house.

Psychosocial Training

Posted: August 4, 2016

A global experience shows that psychosocial support is crucial for the long-term recovery of earthquake survivors and their communities. Nepal is one of the highly earthquake vulnerable countries. After the earthquakes, Nepal started to see psychosocial support as one of the post-disaster priorities but felt the lack of proper training and counseling. 


Temporary Learning Centers (TLC)

Posted: August 4, 2016

“At least 950,000 children in Nepal will not be able to return to school, unless urgent action is taken to provide temporary learning spaces” – UNICEF, 2015

Temporary Learning Centers means building a safe space for children and youth of Nepal to continue their education. After the earthquake, schools were closed for months due to critical structural damages. Humanitarian aid agencies and officials report that over 8,000 schools are damages and unsafe for students and faculty to conduct classes; this means about one million children will not be able to attend school (OCHA, 2015).
