Shelter

With the monsoon season fast approaching, a major part of our earthquake relief effort was focused on ensuring expedited construction of semi-permanent shelters for the many homeless families in Khokana, Lalitpur. We invested in corrugated tin sheets and employed the local village manpower to build simple, stable, and sustainable structures that were re-usable and cost-effective. The intent was for these structures to serve as temporary shelters as the village rebuilt itself – unfortunately poverty and resource-limitedness are such that even two years after the earthquake, we see that several of the families are still utilizing these tin shelters as their current homes. 
Total shelters: 34
Families: 34 (~150 individuals)
