WHR in coordination with District Disaster Relief Committee has started its work in Gender responsiveness at Saurpani, Ghairung and Khoplang VDC of Gorkha district.
We have done a quick ground survey; there are hardly any houses that are standing. We interacted with local stakeholders, community people and women survivors, in spite of their own problems the community people were cordial and eager to listen. The major problem there was the accessibility of the roads and with the monsoon, most of the part of the VDC were on the verge of isolation.
In Saurpani VDC most of the people voiced the same thing, they don’t need rice in the name of relief. They need something sustainable. We had a brief conversation with them and came up with some suggestion and feedbacks.
