Surviving Hell – Help Us!

It has been 8 months since the devastating earthquakes occurred in Nepal. We all witnessed in the media the immense devastation and the desperate need of the Nepali people. It was everywhere we looked and we all helped in many different ways. Since then however, we have gone back to our daily lives and many of us have forgotten the pictures, the faces, the devastation.

Fast forward to today, and STILL many children are not back in school and STILL hundreds of families have not received any help mostly because of problems accessing these remote and rugged areas and challenges in international aid being distributed. Helen Eager, who works on the ground in Nepal with our Nepal based partner (3AN), sent us an urgent request overnight.  She mentions “we have come across a village of 300 families who are barely surviving under bits of plastic and tin out in the open field.  There are another 200 families living in a slum in Kathmandu. Both these groups urgently need our help”. With winter now on them, they are freezing cold and barely functional. Many of these are widows trying to care for their children and Helen’s local worker there has described these women as “surviving their lives like hell” reports Helen.

Captivating - thank you for helping us keep warm

I work in remote villages where Captivating has helped to provide blankets and warm clothes. I work for 3 Angels Nepal (3AN) and it was my job to distribute these blankets and shawls to remote earthquake affected places. These women and their babies are living with just tin over their heads since the April earthquake and are now open to the severe winter elements.
