Vergeten dorpen in Nepal

Een actie om hulp te bieden aan afgelegen plekken in Nepal

"We have survived a horrific tragedy. In minutes we became homeless. For the last 60 years I had worked to make sure my children have the basics they need. Now we have lost everything. I cannot continue my work. My village is ruined, filled with the ghosts of the beauty that existed." - Gyan Lal Dangol, 66 jaar

 

De aardbevingen en talloze naschokken van afgelopen april en mei hebben hele  Nepalese dorpen vernietigd. Vele families zijn sindsdien ontheemd en leven nog steeds in grote tentenkampen en op straat, volledig overgeleverd aan het regenseizoen. Het dodental is nog immers rijzende. Momenteel staat de teller op 8.500 doden en ten minste 10.000 gewonden. Behalve de zorgen over een gebrek aan elektriciteit, mobiele netwerken en een tekort aan medicijnen, voedsel etc. zijn er grote zorgen aangaande mogelijke uitbraken van ziekten.

 

Hoewel er een grote hoeveelheid geld gedoneerd is aan noodhulp voor Nepal, bereikt deze hulp de afgelegen gebieden niet. De grootste redenen hiervoor zijn gebrekkige infrastructuur  en politieke disputen. Omdat wij daar iets aan willen doen, heeft GHRD samen met haar lokale partners OSED en VDF deze crowdfunding opgezet. Hiermee willen wij 7.000 families (meer dan 35.000 mensen) helpen in drie districten: Sindhuli, Ramechhap en Khokana.

 

Met uw hulp krijgen deze families de hulp die ze nodig hebben! Hier is hoe u een bijdrage kunt leveren:

___________________________________________

Dozens of aftershocks that followed the earthquakes of April 25 and May 12, 2015 have demolished entire villages, leaving people homeless in a restless anticipation of the monsoon season. The ever-increasing death toll has reached 8,500 people by mid-May, while at least 10,000 were injured. Apart from power outages, failures of mobile networks and shortages of medical supplies, food etc., there is a huge concern about the disease outbreak.

 

Although humanitarian aid reaches Nepal, the remote villages tend to be neglected due to excessive damage in infrastructure and widespread political disputes. Because the villages that need help the most don’t receive any, GHRD and its local partners, OSED and VDF, have set out to help 7,000 families (over 35,000 people) in 3 districts: Sindhuli, Ramechhap and Khokana.

 

With your assistance, we can get those families the most basic necessities! Here’s how you can help:

 

Noodhulp per gezin/ emergency help per family:

€ 5,00: dekens/ blankets

€ 15,00: drinkwater/ drinking water

€ 15,00: sanitaire producten/ sanitary products 

€ 25,00: dekkleed/ tarpaulin

€ 25,00: voedselpakketten/ food packages

 

Huisvesting/ temporary and repairworks housing:

€ 5,00: handschoenen (gloves)/ schop (shovels)/ gezichtsmaskers (face masks) 

€ 100,00: hout/ wood

€ 150,00: dekzeilen en stalen platen voor huizen/ Tarps and steel plates for temporary housing 

€ 200,00: stalen buizen/ steel pipes

Luck redefined: a story of a teenager

"One day I was just doing some work in the kitchen when all of the sudden the earthquake turned our house into a demolition site"
23-09-2015

My name is Ashok Maharjan. I am from a middle class family and I live with my parents and my brother. Before the earthquake we were leading a happy and comfortable life. My father works as a mason and this career enabled him to pay for the basic necessities, as well as my monthly school tuition.

One day I was just doing some work in the kitchen when all of the sudden the earthquake turned our house into a demolition site. When my brother and I realised what was happening, we rushed outside. Once outside we saw houses collapsing one after another and all we could do is stand there helplessly. When the earthquake finally stopped, many people just broke down in tears and panicked. I thanked God that I found my parents and brother safe and sound. However, my pregnant sister lived in another village, and due to the network problems caused by the earthquake, it took quite some time to reach her. Luckily once we reached her we found her to be in good health.

Unfortunately, not everyone shared our luck. Our neighbours were buried under the rubble of what used to be their home. Other neighbours frantically searched the rubble, trying to dig out the wreckage as they shouted for help and tools. While they were digging, a ceiling of another building fell on top of the rubble, making it even harder to rescue my buried neighbours. Later that night we learned that our dear neighbours did not survive the earthquake, and they died a horrible death being buried alive.

That night my father made a tent for us to sleep in. We lost everything in the earthquake and we didn't even have food to eat that night. We slept in that tent for the next 15 days until the next quake shook us. During that earthquake, my mother broke her leg, and we were so stressed that we weren't able to pay the hospital bill. We ultimately survived on the aid provided by people who came to help our village. I'm so thankful for the help that was granted to us. At this moment life is still not comfortable, but at least we have shelter from the wind and the rain. I had lost all my school clothes and books, but luckily I was able to borrow a uniform from a friend who had already graduated. I am currently in grade 10 and doing my best in school. Although it's a bit uneasy at times having to share my bedroom/study room with my family members, I try to cope as best as I can.

Update van VDF

VDF is begonnen met de middelen die zij hebben hulp te bieden aan de slachtoffers. Recentelijk hebben wij een update van ze ontvangen:

"We started distributing relief materials in Ramechhap. In our first trip we distributed materials to the 20 most poor families of the VDC. There are more than 1100 families living in the VDC out of which 1047 families are the victims of the earthquakes. Though we could distribute relief materials only to few (20 out of 1047 ) families, they were very happy. There would have been much more problems to select families to distribute materials to but the villagers them selves selected the families so with the help of local persons, VDC and the police station distributed materials very easily. They were happy as they got the materials of good quality."

Personal story of Durga Pokhrel

My name is Durga Pokharel. I live in one of the villages in the Ramechhap district in Nepal. My husband and I have 4 daughters and 2 sons. We come from an economically poor class. My husband is disabled. He was born with a dysfunctional hand and now works on a daily salary basis in an office. Besides that, we have a very small piece of land where we do buffalo farming, which brings in some extra income. It isn't much, but we manage to satisfy our basic needs. As a family, we were a happy one.

But on April 25th a great disaster stormed into our life. It was Saturday, we were all at home. By God's grace we were outside, all except for one of my daughters. She was having her lunch inside. I was feeding the buffalos, and my husband was in the garden. Suddenly we heard a strange sound. Everyone started shaking. Soon after the sound I saw mountains shaking, people crying 'Earthquake, Earthquake'. It was only then that I realized that what we were experiencing was an earthquake. I could not stand properly. I remembered that my daughter was inside the house. I cried out her name, I screamed: run out of the house, run out now. Then I saw our house starting to collapse. I tried rushing inside to save my daughter, but my husband stopped me. The stones from which the walls were build were falling out. With the fear I thought about my daughter…and started praying to God and gathering the courage to go inside. When the earthquake stopped, I found my daughter laying on the floor. Scared about what was going on. she had fainted. It was a God's blessing that she was safe. I took her out and sprayed water on her face. She woke up. We only had a minute to rejoice for her survival before the ground started shaking again. Everyone around us was crying while running towards the fields. Stones were falling from the mountains. We thought that was going to be the end of our lives...

People were saying that they had never seen such an earthquake in their lives. Then it started again. Most of my house collapsed. While my family survived the disaster, all the food that we stored inside was gone. We slept outside for the whole night. We thought it was all over, but the next day the earthquake happened again… From that day on, we live outside. In 15 days, on May 12, another earthquake struck, with even more power. The extent of our fear is difficult to describe.

We have been living outside from April 25, and while the earthquakes have stopped, we have no money to build another house. The government has given us Rs. 15000 ( € 125) to buy steel plates for the roof, but this isn't enough. We have lost much more in the earthquake. The aftershocks continue to this day. We don't know what will happen tomorrow. Our situation is not unique: most of the villagers have it similar. We have all lost our houses and other things. We live under constant pressure. All we can ask is the support of the government and people out there who are not indifferent.

Life Turns from Heaven to Hell Within One Minute!

[Hoe was het om de aardbevingen en alle destructie mee te maken? Onze lokale partner OSED sprak met een van de slachtoffers. Lees hieronder zijn verhaal.]

"On April 25th, just when the earthquake started I was working on the ground floor of my home, making door and window frames for my neighbour's newly-built house. Four of my daughters, my son and son-in-law, as well as my three grandchildren, had gone to the field, while one of my daughters was playing on the third floor with her 1.5-year old son. Suddenly we heard a strange sound that shook the ground. I was shocked and started to shout loudly. I froze for some time, just standing there, holding a part of my house with my hands. Everyone was afraid, crying, shouting and running here and there to save the life of their kids. After 15 seconds the houses collapsed in front of my eyes. The surroundings were full of dust and misery. All of a sudden, I remembered my children, who were playing on third floor prior to the earthquake. I thought I lost all three of them that day. I tried to push the door to the room they were playing in open, but it was blocked by the bricks that had fallen down."

He took a long breath and said, "I cleared the bricks, one by one. As I nearly finished removing the bricks from another door nearby, I heard my daughter's voice. She was asking me if it was safe to come down. Just as I heard her voice, the ground underneath my feet was shaking slowly. With a sigh of relief, I told them to come down and go to a safe open area with me. Three of them were full of dust, as if they were made from soil itself. I thank God every day for having saved their lives."

When things settled down a little, Mr. Dangol finally noticed how badly his house was damaged. Apart from the floors supported by cracked pillars, everything was in ruin. "It isn't easy to live a 'normal' life when food and clothes are scarce. It is even harder to live without a roof over your head. Forced to live outside, we spent nearly two weeks in the fields under tarpaulin." Mr. Dangol said with sadness in his eyes. Within 11 days of living in the field, he built temporary shelter using old tins, in which they moved 14 days after the earthquake.

No one has been to the top floor of his ruined house since the earthquake. The risk is too high. Mr. Dangol has been waiting for some governmental support to destroy the house he used to call home, or rather what was left of it, but to no avail. After 1.5 months of restless waiting, he started the work himself with the support of his family and friends. "My heart skipped a beat every time I worked on the house. I have no experience in such work, and the fear of the floors falling on me kept me restless. The house kept shaking as it did during the earthquake. But we viewed the work as an adventure, and had a great feeling of accomplishment," said his 21 years old daughter, Susan Dangol. Due to the rainy season the destruction work is currently paused, and will continue after the monsoon season.

With a bitter sadness in his voice, Mr. Dangol said, "We have survived a horrific tragedy. In minutes we became homeless. For the last 60 years I had worked to make sure my children have the basics they need. Now we have lost everything. I cannot continue my work. My village is ruined, filled with the ghosts of the beauty that existed."

Although Mr. Dangol is 66 years old, he continues working as he did 10 years ago. He hopes to be able to rebuild his house through hard work and determination. The government currently takes no active part in assistance, yet he expects them to help in cleaning up and rebuilding the village.

Nog dagelijkse naschokken

Sinds de aardbevingen eerder dit jaar, zijn er bijna dagelijks naschokken. Zij halen tussen de 4 en 5 op de schaal van richter. De meeste naschokken vinden plaats rond de hoofdstad Kathmandu en ten noord-oosten ervan. Wat betreft de regio's waar wij geld voor inzamelen: Ramechhap en Khoakana behoren tot de gebieden met de meeste en heftigste naschokken (zie ook het kaartje bij onze afbeeldingen).

Inmiddels is in Nepal ook het regenseizoen begonnen, wat de situatie alleen maar erger maakt. Nog steeds leven veel mensen in tenten, in afwachting van hun hervestiging. Inmiddels zijn de tenten door heftige regenvallen niet meer bestand tegen het weer en vallen er opnieuw doden.

OSED Nepal

OSED staat voor Organisation for Social-Economic Development Nepal. Zij richten zich op Khokana, een klein Newari dorpje ten zuiden van Kathmandu.

OSED maakt gebruik van twee distributie modellen om hulp aan de mensen die het het meest nodig hebben te bieden:

1) Focus op wards. Per ward is er één vertegenwoordiger die aan OSED doorgeeft welke behoeften van welke mensen het grootst zijn.
2) Focus op vrouwen-groepen. Vrouwen worden in Nepal nog veel gediscrimineerd. Zodat hun behoeften toch gehoord worden, heeft OSED contact met vier vrouwengroepen in de regio.

OSED heeft een tijdelijke "Ward Citizen Group" met actieve vrijwilligers van OSED opgericht, die bij alle huishoudens nagaat hoe ernstig de geleden schade is. Op basis van deze informatie wordt een eerlijke verdeling van hulpmiddelen gemaakt. OSED wil geld inzamelen om onderdak te verzorgen die de aankomende moesson kunnen verdragen. Daarnaast wordt ook in de nodige noodhulp voorzien, in de vorm van bijvoorbeeld voedselpakketten.

VDF Nepal

VDF is een van de lokale partners van GHRD in Nepal. Deze organiseert is actief in en rondom Janakpur - 20 km van de grens met India. Hier wonen een kleine 100.000 mensen.

VDF is een kleine organisatie met zeer gedreven mensen. GHRD werkt al jaren met ze samen aan verschillende projecten ter versterking van mensenrechten. Zij werken voornamelijk met de armsten uit de samenleving en proberen hen te onderwijzen in wat hun rechten zijn. Dit zorgt voor meer gelijkheid tussen mannen en vrouwen en tussen de verschillende lagen in de bevolking.

VDF werkt ook aan onderwijs. Zij vertellen wat het belang hiervan is en proberen bij te dragen aan de oprichting van scholen.

Nu Nepal door zo veel aardbevingen en naschokken is getroffen, wil VDF bijdragen aan het verlenen van noodhulp. VDF richt zich voornamelijk op het district Ramechhap. Dit district ligt naast Dolkha, waar het epicentrum van de tweede aardbeving lag. VDF was meteen ter plaatse om te kijken welke hulp er nodig is. Ook nu nog komt VDF regelmatig in Ramechhap om te kijken wat de situatie en acute hulpbehoefte is. De dorpen Khimati, Bhuji, Betali en Tokarpur lijken het meest getroffen: meer dan 90% van de huizen zijn volledig verwoest. Amper tot geen geld weet deze gebieden te bereiken.

Met de donaties zal VDF hulpgoederen kopen in India en deze vervolgens zelf in de bergdorpen afleveren.
