Flood Observation and Support at Madi Chitwan, September 2017

by Radha Paudel
Radha Paudel Foundation supported seven families to construct the house in coordination with local political leaders, youth clubs, women leaders, media. They were dalit, widow, person with disability and poor. They will finish their construction before Dashain.  I had meetings at Municipality officer with political leaders, hospital with medical team and hospital development commiitee for assessing the maternal and child health, spoke with local radio regarding women’s right, menstrual rights, literature etc. I also have meetings and discussions on same issue with other key stakeholders and individuals. I went there by using three hours public bus from Bharatpur and walked here and there. There were flooded everywhere, I had crossed four rivers by using buffalo cart and returned with Sabitri on her bike (2 hours in bike).Here, I would like to extend to everyone who trust me from USA, UK, Nepal, Madi,my family and all.
