Update Nepal earthquake, current situation in our projects

Nepal is located by the earthquake in a very difficult situation, the country is paralyzed and humans and animals in a state of shock. We make very strong wishes for the people and animals who lost their lives and for those who have survived. The states will worsen, particularly in the earthquake-affected areas.

What can the Himalaya eV project, do our small Non Government Organization at this moment? We can give direct aid to people in our projects, we serve for many years anyway. Will look like this help? This we shall see in the next few weeks and after we have given us a better overview of the state of our families and schools. In the coming months will be made much more activity on our part in the form of cash or in kind support. Our personal infrastructure in our place in Swoyambhu is also collapsed, so there will be some time until we need again in the normal way for the Himalaya Projekt eV can be active. Our Swoyambhu point is the base camp for all Himalaya Projekt activities and our backbone in Nepal. All we will keep you in the near future up to date.

After the great earthquake on 25 April 2015, the world has still not quite at ease at the epicenter and Kathmandu. There are always smaller and slightly stronger shocks in these areas. The contact in the mountain regions is still partly not possible because the telephone network is disturbed, we get very little information from some of our project sites.

  • Project 0 sponsorships outside of our projects:

    From the village a godchild, which is in Kathmandu to school and is doing well, we have news that the village is very destroyed, many wounded and some dead were also in the surrounding villages (Okaldhunga and Solokhumbha area). The telephone connection in this area is virtually impossible.

  • Project 3 Manjugkosha Academy:

    Even more than a week after the quake camp the school team and around 20 students in the yard. There is little water and rarely electricity, but all are unharmed. School building, kitchen and bedrooms are badly damaged and not currently available. The school will be closed for the time being. The majority of students were sent home to their families. The restoration of the school is to begin soon and also with our financial aid, thus taken the lessons again and the children can be supplied.

  • 5 project sponsorship for children in the Bigu "Himalayan Region Welfare English School" (HRWES):

    The headmaster Lama Namgyal is currently in Kathmandu to take advice his broken leg doctor. He had an accident before the earthquake. He had after the earthquake a very short phone call to Bigu before the telephone network is collapsed. Since there is no more after Bigu phone contact.The school building and the kitchen and most of the houses and the small monastery of Bigu are completely destroyed. Some residents have been doing come or injured died. It was just lunch time came as the first major earthquake and fortunately so were most of the people on the field at work.

    The otherwise very dangerous barely passable road to Bigu is destroyed. From Kathmandu you can still go to a point of the road with a jeep and from there a 10 hours of walking is just possible. Lama Namgyal, it is much better, but he is not yet able to walk without crutches. A teacher of the school is now up to Bigu go to see what is now necessary to help to these to make then, with our support as soon as possible. According to recent news in the Nepalese television was now in Bigu the Indian Army and has provided first aid. Project manager: Sandra Biegert sandra.biegert@himalayaprojekt.org
