Earthquake Relief Effort

Dealing with the raw grief of losing his brother in the earthquake, Take on Nepal founder, Som Tamang swung into action, mobilising people from all around Australia and New Zealand to gather supplies and be part of a significant relief effort. Som made sure some of the more remote, difficult to reach and hardest hit villages, including Batase, had access to vital medical supplies, food and building materials so communities had shelter for the coming monsoon season.

Take on Nepal volunteers arrived in Batase bringing hope and support to a devastated community. Resources were distributed by the volunteers, health posts were set up where health professionals assessed and treated injured victims of the earthquake. Makeshift homes were erected providing shelter to families left homeless by the earthquake. A temporary school was erected allowing children to return to school, our Take on Nepal volunteers continued to provide tuition to the students of Batase allowing them to have some sense of normality in their lives.

Many of our past Take on Nepal volunteers held fundraising events to raise money for the people of Batase village, other volunteers donated money to help the people that they had come to know and care about during their time volunteering in Batase.

The team at Take on Nepal would like to thank everyone who particpated in the disaster relief program throughout 2015 and 2016. Your help and assistance was appreciated, by us and by the people of Batase and Nepal. Immediate relief efforts have now wound down, and our focus has shifted back to more long term support and assistance to Nepal. Anyone interested in volunteering should look at some of our other volunteer programs in Nepal.
