Nepal Earthquake

25th April 2015

Information and Statistics

Nepal recently hit by earthquake at 11:41am local time on April 25th, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck approximately 50 miles northwest of Kathmandu.

Tremors were felt across northern India and neighbouring Bangladesh and Pakistan. On May 12th 12:50 local time, a second earthquake struck with a magnitude of 7.3 causing further significant damage and further loss of life. Powerful aftershocks continued for hours, including 5.6 and 6.3 magnitude tremors with epicentres in Sindhupalchowk and Ramechhap districts.

According to the Government, a total of 32 districts were affected including those still recovering from the 25 April earthquake. Pre-positioning of supplies is critical to ensure that the relief continues to reach remote, rural village.

As of 21 May a total of 494,717 houses were reported destroyed and 267,373 houses damaged, according to the Ministry of Home Affairs. The confirmed death, last reporting period was 8,631 people (4,750 female; 3,867 male; 14 bodies remain unidentified). This includes 154 people killed in the 12 May earthquake.

With the monsoon season beginning in June, providing emergency shelter to affected communities in remote and hard to reach areas is a priority. For the immediate response, high quality tarpaulins, corrugated zinc coated sheet, tools and household items are needed.

As of 8 May the Government confirmed an increase in the total numbers to 288,798 houses destroyed and 254,112 damaged.

Plea for donation to help rebuild a school in Nepal

On behalf of AUG, I have volunteered committed AUG to help out the village of Dhading and its people in rebuilding a school.

At this moment, a temporary big tent (donated by several volunteers) has been erected to act as temporary classroom for schooling.  It sits on a new plot of land, cleared of earthquake fallen debris, rocks and miscellaneous matter by the village women and men. See photos.

The destroyed school classrooms was previously located on the side wall of a high cliff, very much like a rice terrace being cut out from the hill slope.  This previous site has been deemed too dangerous to be rebuilt at the same location, in case another quake or landslides were to hit again.  Hence, now a new lot of land is being used as housing for temporary classrooms.

I have committed to rebuilding the school, accordingly with the same look and style of the destroyed classrooms, using the same materials.   It will be in rectangular in shape, of equal sizes, housing 3 classrooms and a teacher room.  I will consider the furnishing costing of the classrooms later now. But for now, it’s to rebuild the school 3 classrooms and teacher room.

I have volunteered to raise fund for this rebuilding. This will make it all worthwhile for AUG to be meaningful entity.
