Relief Distribution

Lapshephedi

In Lapshephedi, we distributed immediate relief to 5 villages. Most houses in these villages were completely destroyed by the earthquake and people were living out in the open. We distributed rice, pulse, salt, sugar and other edible items. We also distributed tarpaulin tents so they could construct makeshift shelters. With our help, these people have lived through the initial traumatic stage and fought off hunger.

Taplejung

More than 50 people were buried alive in the recent landslide in Taplejung. Most NGOs and government agencies were preoccupied in earthquake affected districts and they didn’t even notice the tragedy.
​”​Smile for Hope​”​acted swiftly providing tents, rice, lentils, cooking oil, salt and plates to over 500 people in 5 villages. For the pregnant women and newborn babies, we provided clothes, nutrition, milk, lotion and pads. With our help, these villagers are now starting to rebuild their lives and a semblance of normalcy has been restored.

Temporary Learning Shelters

​”​Smile for Hope​” ​provided 8 temporary learning centers in 8 schools located in very remote, earthquake ravaged districts. The buildings of these schools had completely collapsed after the earthquake and the students didn’t have any classrooms to return to their schools. Our centers can now accommodate these students and normal classes have now resumed. Over 300 students benefited from the learning center.

Temporary shelters — Lapsephedi

In keeping with our principles of skill sharing, local sourcing and community empowerment, our team in Lapsephedi has built 62 temporary shelters made of locally sourced bamboo, wheat straw, tarpaulin and sand bags. We choose to build these shelters for people who couldn’t afford to build themselves and didn’t have any family members to help them. These semi-permanent homes will help the population survive the coming monsoon and storms while we prepare for their permanent housing.
