A group of resident and nonresident Nepalis have distributed relief materials to earthquake affected people in Ling Ling of Rasuwa. The Ling Ling village is one of the most affected villages of Rasuwa, a district bordering Tibet on the north.
Despite the mighty rain and storm of Saturday, our mission to reach out to earthquake survivors near Nepal-Tibet border in Ling-Ling, Rasuwa was successful.
With live and active landslides and rain and 16-our long non-stop journey, it was challenging. But this was way less challenging than the life of the people in Ling Ling since the April 25 earthquake. More than 50 percent of the families in the village were landless and had received very little as relief, mainly due to its remoteness and lack of access by good road. The landslides kept many people away from the district.
Sincere Thanks to the team who contributed in purchasing the relief materials by raising Rs. 108,000 which paid for transport of two trucks and relief materials. The key contributors includes Kumar and Radha Pradhan and the family, JohnParajuli and his family, KamalSigdel and his family, VijayaSingh, VijayKeshari and others. The relief (1000Kg rice, 250kg beans, 100 kg salt packets, 50 liters cooking oil, soaps etc) reached to 200 members of 50 families in mountanious village.
