ROOFING URGENTLY NEEDED...

Dear All,

Namaste and greetings.

Recently, we visited different VDC of Gorkha, Dhading, Makwanpur, Tanahu, Myagdi, Baglung and Parwat districts (you can download the
full report here). People are slowly getting back to their normal life. Since relief aid is getting late to reach in remote villages so people rebuilding their shelters with whatever materials left with them. The Villagers saying that this time everybody sending tarpaulin for temporary shelters but that is not working properly and not durable in this weather since monsoon is approaching and evenings is windy and stormy in some hilly region. So, I think is best option is to buy roofing materials such as zinc roofing sheets. The roofing sheets for a house costs nearly US$ 200-300 including nails, and the materials is easily available locally. I have also attached the latest update data for different district.
