VILLAGE : DHEURALI CHAPP - WARD NO 5 - DHADING NO OF HOUSES 35 ..

JIGME ( JJ ) Our Adviser Member of the NGTF had a special request from his friends from Australia who had trekked with him and his sherpa GUIDE who had come from this village and he is now retired . his name is Rana We had a call from him that his village disparately need Aid for the village . JJ and I packed our Hilux with food and shelter material like Tarpaulin which the village had requested .

 


 

 

 We around 9 am from Kathmandu heading south for 110 km to the village - The last 17 km was off road and need good skill to drive to the village. We got there around midday and it was wonderful to see all the village folks special our friend Mr Rana who was so delighted and in cloud 9 that we and come to visit him and his folks to distribute the food . We had the local folks come with flower glands and welcomed us with Tika on our forehead and give us blessing for long life ..How sweet these mountain folks are.. This is the beauty of these mountain people . They are so humble and strong with Wonderful traditions and culture that these people of nepal acquire.. Tis is the reason why so many western come to trek and meet thesis wonderful folks of the Nepal Himalaya. They make you feel so homely even after the devastating earthquake that have completely destroyed their homes and cattle.

We quickly got organised and started distributing the Aid to all the 35 house . We could see the smiling in their faces and a relief in their eyes - at last they now have food and shelter. JJ and i was now very very hungry and we had not had lunch and we did not want to give the village people trouble to cook for us as we know that they are the victims of the disaster so as soon as we finished distributing the aid. The village people thanked us for coming all the way from Kathmandu and thinking of them at this very hard times . I drove the hills in lighting speed down the hill - I could see JJ and another staff very quite and at times closing their eyes while I monover the corners of the off road downhill . WE reached Malayku village on the HWY and ordered our lunch. Its was 3;30 pm . Lunch was on the table very quick services - there was no words at all we just eat fast as we were really hungry - A good nepali Dhal Bhat and local river fried fish was so delicious. After lunch JJ drove us back home to ktm . We arrived back home around 7 pm and very tired.

Overall it was great day but long journey 220 km but very humble experience and a job well done.

AID RELIEF DROP FROM KTM TO OKHARPAUWA VILLAGE . NO OF HOUSES 135 .

Thanks to our NGTF friends and donors today we managed to serve and help 135 houses in the Okharpauwa village, Nuwakote District, Ward no.2. On doing this we managed to complete the work that other organizations had neglected, as we catered to people that had houses deep in the rural communities where the relief materials did not reach. In spite of the massive 7.3 magnitude aftershock we faced midway to the village at 12:50. We continued our mission and managed to distribute the relief food successfully. NGTF and our friends donated 4.05 tonnes of rice. rice, 135 kgs of salt, 135 liters of oil, 390 pkts of Noodles.

We worked from the main highway with the help of the local volunteers as it was almost impossible to reach the villages as there are no commutable roads to reach them. It took us 3 hours to help all the 135 houses as there was a lot of confusion and paranoia because of the continuing aftershocks and people were worried that the rations would not be distributed fairly. However we had all the registered names of the family and we worked with a planned system. It was not easy ...

We had a very successful day and we saw smiles on the faces of the people there. They were all very thankful and happy. Finally we must commend Mr Achyut Neupane, for his perseverance, as he was completely focused on the task in hand and showed complete positivity in-spite of knowing that his house was demolished because of todays earthquake. We wish him well and will stick by him in these tough times. It is due to the leadership of Tashi Wangchuk Tenzing, Yat Siu, dedicated members, volunteers and friends of NGTF that we persevere through hard times to help and rebuild lives of our country.


 

Thank u Amelia Hillary for this precious 8 PACKAGE tarpaulin plastic shade for Ngtf aid relief. This will certainly be well used by the village folks in the mountains .. Amelia has been helping NGTF at this very hard times that the country is facing due the devastating earthquake
