The Story

6 May 2015

Between 2010 and 2012 I lived and worked in Nepal in a voluntary capacity in the field of organisational development. For much of that time I worked with the Community Self Reliance Centre (CSRC Nepal), a leading national Non-Governmental Organisation which, since 1993 has been engaged in poverty alleviation through land and agrarian reform. 

The resourcefulness and resilience of Nepalis is unquestionable. The resources at their disposal less so…

The earthquake in Nepal on 25 April 2015 has already killed more than 7,500 people, injured 14,500, and destroyed over 255,000 houses. The estimated death toll and number injured continues to rise. Despite a rapid response from the international community, there are still many rural areas of Nepal which have as yet received little in the way of support. Difficulties regarding accessibility and relief co-ordination have led to local groups finding ways of working together to provide urgently needed practical support to those communities which are most vulnerable.

CSRC has launched a disaster relief action on the ground in collaboration with a number of other organisations, in order to support vulnerable communities who are in immediate need of relief and reconstruction assistance.

CSRC aims to serve some 1000 extremely vulnerable people in seven districts of Nepal (Sindhupalchowk, Rasuwa, Nuwakot, Lalitpur, Ramechap, Khotan, and Okaldunga) through the provision of food, clean water, shelter and fuel. CSRC currently works in each of these districts, where it already has a network and team of volunteers on the ground that can direct your contribution to affected areas as soon as possible.

More about CSRC:

Founded in 1993, CSRC currently works in 54 out of Nepal's 75 districts, where it has been educating and organising people who are deprived of their basic rights to land and decent livelihoods. Its programmes have focused on strengthening community organizations, developing human rights defenders, and promoting land and agrarian reform on behalf of land-poor farmers. CSRC's mission is to enhance the power of land-poor farmers leading land and agrarian reforms for the dignified life.

With much of the housing destroyed, temporary shelter is crucial whilst rebuilding takes place. CSRC is now involved in planning and providing temporary housing materials in earthquake affected areas- in  particular in the districts of Sindhupalchok, Ramechhap and Rasuwa. On 25th May CSRC was able to take out sufficient zinc sheets to a total of 81 families.

Having the means of putting (literally) a roof over your head its as basic as that.

Please keep donating and have a look at the latest photos which have just been uploaded.

Thank you for your continued support...

Not out of the woods yet...

As you will no doubt be aware, Nepal has today been rocked by yet another earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale.

The news is not good with more death and destruction in areas where it is already difficult to get support to those most in need.

CSRC is still working with local land rights activists in some of the most affected areas to ensure that practical assistance an relief is provided...

Keep sharing, keep making sure that Nepal is not consigned to a footnote in the news...and if you can, keep donating..
