Earthquake Relief at Khuriya near Sankhu.
GMIN members collaborated with Kesang Sherpa of Thali to support two vilalges east of Sankhu. We surveyed two villages called Khuriya and Khuryal. There were about 80 houses in total and not a single one is safe to live in. All the houses are made of mud bricks and mud and two storied. There was no reported death here. It is about 10 minutes walk from the closest road and about 30 minutes to the farthest house. They have not received any support from anyone but had to go to Sankhu as they said that Red Cross and the Nepal army was distributing Relief items and they did not get anything. Sankhu has suffered a big loss in terms of damage done to buildings and also we were told that 100 people died and that many more were buried. We distributed 15 Plastic tarps which is all Kesang Sherpa was able to get, we distributed torch light to every house and some snacks. The plastic mats could not fit in the car and jeep brought by the volunteers. So plastic mats will be distributed tomorrow. Vilage Khuriya had about 36 families with about 145 people and the second village had bout 50 families with about 230 people. We will be going to Sindupalchowk too.
