Nepal Earthquake 2015
About 8 million people were affected during the recurring earthquake in Nepal. As a result, the severely affected ones had to leave their places of origin and settle in the sporadic camps in Kathmandu valley. During emergency, there was much tension in the air and lot of pressure to place the right aid in the right places in the right time. The aid were being supplied from lot of different humanitarian agencies and NCV had also just landed in Nepal at the crucial time. NCV began its job as a WASH partners with UNICEF during the emergency period. Responsibilities for 5 recognized IDP camps were initially given to NCV. Initially, we had started our work at Balaju IDP camp with self-funding to construct the toilets benefiting more than 400 families placed in sporadic locations. The other camps were Chuchepati, Golf course , Boudha and Gokarna IDP camp. In next coming months, NCV discovered other camps with the information from IDPs and hence extended services to 9 different camps over the period of 7 months benefiting more than 20000 IDPs altogether.
