NEPAL Relief

nepal

We at Planet Changer, in response to the earthquake devastation in Nepal, are standing with them and are committed to bring emergency aid in response to this disaster. Central Nepal (the Kathmandu Valley) is the worst hit as hundreds of thousands of people have been affected by the 7.8 quake.

The death-toll, which is already at 8400 and climbing, is expected to eclipse 10,000. As buildings and villages have been reduced to rubble, the need for emergency food, water, shelter and medical attention is overwhelming to say the least.

With such sever devastation, rescue/emergency teams are working round the clock to bring in aid. It is already estimated that 1,000,000 children are in areas that have been affected.

PLANET CHANGER RESPONDS

 

We are partnering with two organizations that are on the ground delivering emergency help in the areas of food, water, clothing, shelter and medical care. Through partnering with World Vision and Doctors Without Borders, the Nepalese families will receive emergency and sustainable care from these two organizations that are experts in disaster relief.

The devastation in Nepal is not a quick fix or a short-term problem but will need ongoing help rebuilding, therefore it is our aim to keep working with partners on the ground to help rebuild, revitalize and renew the region.

Thank you for donating to Planet Changer to make a difference in Nepal.

Planet Project Funded | Community Tube Well, Nepal

A community tube well, often serves 6 to 10 families. Typically, this is the first time in their lives that these families have access to a deep well that provides clean water. The impact on their lives is dramatic. The clean water improves the health of the individuals in the community. Children who were collecting water all day long for their families can now go to school. Women are able to better care for their children and even contribute to the family’s income, rather than spend innumerable weekly hours carrying water. Local technicians have been trained in sound well-drilling practices. This ensures wells are constructed properly, are sealed (preventing contamination) and provide clean water from a deep source. In addition, selected community members receive system maintenance and repair training to ensure sustainability of the project.

This fully funded project brought clean water to a remove village in Nepal. It included material cost, local labor for installation, and associated education programs to the village (sanitation, system maintenance and repair, etc.).
