Event Name: Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund
Response in the short term: (not necessary any more around Kathmandu)
- Basic food basket: rice, dhal (lentils), biscuits rich in protein, glucose biscuits, glucose powder mix, tea, sugar, salt, dry fruit and nuts rich in protein.
- Commodities basket: soap, water disinfectant, mosquito coil, flashlight, spare batteries, sanitary napkins
- Community medicine basket: iodine, cotton wool, gauze, Oral Rehydration Salt mix and Zinc tablets (for children suffering from diarrhea), medicine for adult diarrhea, paracetamol for adults and children.
Response in the medium term provide tents, and ensure that these families are ready to face the monsoon season and more importantly they are prepared to avoid or treat diarrhea, mosquito-borne diseases, and water-borne diseases which are more of a problem now when they don't live in their homes. However, there are no tents to find anywhere in Kathmandu at the moment.
Response in the long term contribute materials so these communities rebuild their homes. But this phase will take time...
