“If one day, the Thai government were to send me back to Myanmar, what would I do? I don’t have any knowledge or skills needed to feed my family. My life would be doomed,” Saw Kai spoke with concern in his voice.

Saw Kai was born in Myanmar and worked as a day laborer along the Thai-Myanmar border. Due to the volatile nature of the area, he immigrated to Thailand and took refuge at Mae La camp in 2004. He married a lady from the camp as well and they have two children together.

ADRA distributes food packs; partners with Scheer Memorial Hospital

 

KATHMANDU, NEPAL—ADRA staff and volunteers began packing food kits complete with rice, lentils, noodles, sugar, salt, and oil yesterday. The packs will last a family of six for two weeks, and will be distributed this weekend.

Twenty-six community volunteers met ADRA staff yesterday at the Scheer Memorial Hospital’s girl’s dormitory to help pack 1,000 food kits that will go to families in need in remote areas of Dhading.

“My friend asked me if I could come to help, so I came,” said Sohil Parajuli, 18, whose home was not affected by the earthquake. “It’s better than just watching the news helplessly. At least this way I can do something.”

ADRA distributes tarps in hard to reach villages

 

KATHMANDU, NEPAL—ADRA Nepal staff are working around the clock to deliver much-needed tarps and food to families in remote villages in Dhading and Kavre.

Tough road conditions, including rubble from houses destroyed by the earthquake is making distributions more difficult. ADRA workers are driving up to five hours and walking long distances in the mountainous regions of Nepal with tarps and materials to be distributed to communities.

“We are going to great lengths to ensure that even those who are hard to reach receive the urgent assistance that they need as soon as possible,” says Robert Patton, ADRA Emergency Response Coordinator.

Over the last week, ADRA has distributed 1,278 tarps in Dhading district, 900 tarps in Kavre, 50 tarps in Kathmandu, and 64 tents in Lalitpur. There are plans to begin food distributions in addition to continuing shelter distributions later this week.

Families in remote villages are relieved to see they have not been forgotten.

ADRA Begins Tarp and Tent Distributions in Nepal 


KATHMANDU, NEPAL— Response to the earthquake in Nepal continues as the Adventist Development and Relief Agency begins to distribute much needed shelter to affected families in Dhadhing and Kavre districts.

Rainfall has already begun in Kathmandu and other affected areas. Meteorologists have predicted rainfall for the next 10 days, creating difficulty and discomfort for those still forced to sleep outside.

“We are working on responding as quickly as possible,” said Robert Patton, ADRA’s emergency response coordinator. “Trying to help protect these families and those who are most vulnerable—children, the elderly, the disabled—from the elements is one of our top priorities.”
