Austin Lord: Happy to hear about the school being rebuilt in Saramthali. Otherwise, this article is filled with inaccuracies and unhelpful exaggerations: The Association for International Solidarity in ASIA has NOT provided CGI sheets to all of the residents of four VDCs (presumably Bhorle, Jibjibe, Yarsa and Saramthali). That would be thousands of households… likely they delivered to a few wards in each VDC. Claiming full coverage is incredibly irresponsible. Further, several other NGOs are operating in those areas, and have been distributing CGI sheets long before the group (i.e. SEEDS). My own volunteer organization distributed several hundred tarps in both Yarsa and Saramthali VDCs. Yarsa and Saramthali have also received significant food aid. Nuwakot is not “waiting for...
D]: that’s not true. most emergency goods (medicines, clean drinking water, food, sheets) can be carried in
Niraj Khadka: can carry long term packages by porter bt emergency relief package is likely impossible to supply by them
David Seddon: whats wrong with using local porters to carry goods to villages? employment (incomes) & gets goods there
Niraj Khadka: We can not change our terrain but we can strengthen our aircraft or heli transport power of Nepal Army.
@nwfireblog: So sad to see the devastation and the destuction. They CAN rebuild but this will be a long journey, we’re afraid.
Fritz Berger: Not to beliefe that Singati destroyed completely. I can cray! The old prosperous Singati is documented in my book of Dolakha Distriect 1973 to 2011 “in the Shadow of Gaurishaker” under a chapter with the title Singati the new hub.
Jackson Mariatz: Our hearts and prayers are with all of the people affected by this disaster.
raj: They were the first to act when the earthquake hit not only providing most needed rescue and relief operation during the crucial golden hours, they also helped Nepalese across and others in updating the scale of damage and facilitating the surge of help that followed. Instead of expressing gratefulness many Nepalese have opted to pass loose comments which just shows their immaturity and lack of insight. If they have taken some limelight, don’t you remember the phrase ‘ Jasle Maha Katacha Usle haat chatcha’ Nepalese you need to grow and be more organised than just criticise others.
Raju Katwal: es they do and its better to have them instead of having useless indian aircrafts carrying their journalist here and there
Sanim Gurung: I hope they know that we don’t have any oil reserves.
Uday Lama: I can’t believe Kathmandu doesn’t have heavy-lift equipment to deal with the current situation. It’s time to think about the future. It’s time to buy the required equipments and train people to operate them and get ready for the future. Alternative international airports are fine, but it seems their existence is way too far in the future. Good luck TIA.
Ramesh Basnet: We have elected you, paid salary and your comforts with our taxes. Now, why we nee to suffer with your strike. Asking own rights, do not forget about rights of majority people. Please bring early constitution and break the dead lock. Ensure us about clean drinking water, electricity to keep away darkness, good road to move around and dust free air to breathe. We do not expect more than these, rest will will make the nation. Please stop barbaric act, be aware that we are in 21st century. Leaders must unite nation, stop dividing community and regions.
