Here is the latest on our emergency response:
We have two staff members (Sophia and Simone) in the office receiving and coordinating volunteers and donations from our networks in Nepal (If you are in Kathmandu and want to help go to our facebook page for details). They are also talking to relief agencies to coordinate our efforts.
At Kathmandu Airport we have setup a desk which is coordinating receiving aid including from the Global Shapers group of the World Economic Forum who are doing an amazing job sourcing items from within Kathmandu and from India. This is being led by our Director Dr Tshering Lama who is making sure that all the aid we recieve gets through customs and then gets either gets on an army relief helicopter or on our bikes and trucks to Melamchi in Sindhupalchok where we have established a transit area in coordination with the Nepali army.
When we get the relief items to the Melamchi Army base, Urgen, Prateek and their team are working with the military to get tents, medicine and food out to remote areas of Sindhupalchok. These are the areas where we have worked years and we are doing everything we can to get aid to the people who have survived.
Once again, we could not do this with out the help of our amazing supporters. Please share this and go to https://www.childreach.org.uk/nepal-appeal to find out what you can do to help.
