we will rise again
Organized by: Inspire Nepal People Trust
Our Plan and vision we are sure whatever support international community provides to Nepal will not reach the poor. Politicians and officers in charge of distributing the aid will steal most of the money. This cynicism and hopelessness is common among the Nepalese. we wonder how much the international community will aid in the reconstruction effort. Some areas of this beautiful country have been completely destroyed. The countryside’s connections with towns and cities are poor. Many parts of Nepal are not easily accessible. National and international attention should focus on rebuilding Nepalese infrastructure and rebuilding it better. In the aftermath of the quakes, there has been and continues to be enormous efforts put in search and rescue operations as well as immediate relief, including temporary disaster housing. Maintaining primary focus on search and rescue and relief is absolutely necessary in the short-term. In the medium-term, focus will no doubt shift towards providing adequate transitional housing and services—people should be housed adequately, children should be in school, and sick persons should be given medical care. The long-term goals of responsible rebuilding and practical earthquake preparation come next. But the work of defining what long-term goals should begin now because without identifying them, it is hardly possible to build suitable roadmaps that lead to them. In fact, the medium-term goals also depend greatly on what the long-term goals are.
