RS35141_IR tents in Sindupalchowk (1)

Case study for one month on anniversary of the Nepal earthquake that struck on the 25th April 2015. Pujan, 10 months old, and Puja, three, lost their mother in the quake while their father was abroad in Malaysia for labour work. The family had been trapped under the rubble. The grandfather of Puja and Pujan found the bodies of his wife and daughter in law. He also found Puja and Pujan. Puja had fractured her leg. The father of the children had to loan money to pay for his visa and air fares to return.

Islamic Relief built a shelter for the family, and also trained other members of the community how to built these shelters for themselves.

Here are some IR tents being constructed in Sindupalchowk.
