The April 25th Earthquake hit the people of Nepal very hard. Three of our project districts: Gorkha, Kathmandu, and Lalitpur were badly affected. Gorkha being the epicenter suffered the most. GNI Nepal’s emergency response was also mostly concentrated in five VDCs: Aruarbang, Finam, Lapu, Manbu and Thumi of the Gorkha District. We provided shelter, non-food items (NFI), education, health care and WASH services, protection, and food security and economic recovery support to the earthquake survivors.
As a continuation of its relief and recovery work, GNI Nepal provided support for reconstructing 32 drinking water systems. Construction of all those systems has been successfully completed. Additionally, GNI Nepal has provided support for reconstructing one building each for health facilities in Lapu, Thumi, Manbu VDCs and Gorkha Municipality Ward No. 12-13 (Finam). GNI Nepal has initiated reconstruction of eight permanent child-disabled-and-gender friendly school buildings, five outreach clinics buildings, and 10 drinking water systems in Gorkha Municipality Ward No. 12-13 (Finam), Aruarwang, Thumi, Lapu, and Manbu VDCs.
