April 25, 2016 was the black day in a history of Nepal due to devastating earthquake where about 9000 people dead, 22,000 people injured and 6,00,000 houses destroyed. The loss was shooting up due to monsoon, winter and more than 5 months’ boarder blockade.
Unfortunately, the government merely failed to serve the survivors due to so much political influence as well as corrupted and incompetent political leaders and bureaucrats. About six months took place to form Act, policy on reconstruction. It was further delayed to choose the CEO for National Reconstruction Authority due to turn over the government. It was already more than 4 months of new CEO, but there is merely absence of results around reconstruction. There were no staff as planned, neither the guideline works nor the political leaders. April 24, 2016 was a completion of a year of earthquake or anniversary but almost all survivors are still living under tarpaulins sadly. They deprived from many rights as they deserved.
About two weeks, along with few friends, I was working rigorously against the government’s incompetency and corrupted approach. As an entry point, April 24 2016 or Baisakh 12, 2073 was picked up by marking earthquake anniversary. I was assigned for communication primarily.
It was not easy to work with new team members from various walks of life though we made it. I had invited almost all NGOs where women are leading and working on Human right issue. But no one join the campaign except few friends at personal level.
Here, I have shared few photos copied from facebook. Long way to go but possible. Scrolled down for demand paper
