As soon as the natural disaster had stuck, Color Nepal activated 45 members and 35 volunteers to distribute water, dry foods, rice, tents, temporary houses and basic health services to help the people affected. The places in Nepal where all these campaigns took place included Bhardeu, Lele, Ramkot, Pashupatinath, Bishnumati, Tarebhir, Dhading, Gorkha, Nuwakot, Sindhupalchok, and Changunarayan.
Since April 2015 the team has managed to help 200 families in building temporary houses. We have also distributed tents to over 600 families and tarpaulins for makeshift shelter to another 500.
Now our current funds have gone into cultural reconstruction efforts and support towards the many members of our organization who have lost their homes, friends, and family. Our goal is to ensure that we as a team help protect the cultural topography of the Kathmandu valley and the community that supports it.
We have understood from the beginning that there have been many collective efforts trying to help in the aftermath of the recent earthquake. The CNEP community thanks you in trusting us and we promise that our years of local experience in dealing with outreach will help play an important role going forward.
Our efforts will continue and although your support has gone a long way and has made a world of difference there is still so much more to accomplish.
