Nepal - Spreading awarness & asking support from the Permaculture Community

Posted by Roman Eisenkoelbl about 5 years ago

Nepal needs your support

I have been a regular visitor to Nepal over the last 4 years and have made a deep connection with this country, its kind hearted people and stunning environment. Permaculture in Nepal is very established and practiced by a huge amount of Nepali Farmers.This is much connected to the long term efforts of people like Chris Evans and Govinda Sharma plus many, many more.

The current news about the situation in Nepal after a second earthquake hit the country just a day ago is really, really worrying to me.Nepal was hit by two earthquakes in two weeks, one with 7.8 and another one with 7.3 magnitude plus several severe aftershocks. So far more then 8000 people have died and many many more are left homeless and without food.This situation makes me feel really sad knowing this country and its wonderful people that are living often on a very tight budget without much money but full of love and joy.

I am participating in the Diploma program here in Australia at the moment at the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast and for the first time in 4 years I am not in Nepal at this time of the year. I ask myself how can I help from so far away and thought of spreading the message, raising awareness, asking for 'Fair Share' support and help from the Permaculture network is the best I can do at this point from here.

 

 

                 The situation in the village of Patlekhet, near HASERA

 

 

                                  Most houses have totally collapsed

 

Until now I didn't hear from some of my friends living in Nepal since the earthquake hit but I am in constant contact with Govinda Sharma from Hasera Agriculture Research and Training Centre.

We have worked together on a PDC Course in South India and I also stayed with him and his family at the Hasera Research and Training Centre just outside of Kathmandu. I was impressed by his wealth of knowledge, his constant and passionate support for the local community and his kind family.

He is one of the pioneers in the Permaculture movement in Nepal and a passionate Farmer Trainer, Community Supporter and Family man.

The situation in Hasera itself is that parts of Govinda's family house has suffered some damage in the form of big cracks and the same in his training hall were hundreds of local and foreign students have been trained so far.

                      Cracks on villagers family houses

Govinda and some volunteer helpers assessed the situation in the village around Hasera and have found:

Total no. of Houses: 906
Completely collapsed: 26.3%
Cracked but not safe to live in: 71.9%
Suitable to live in after repairing: 1.7%

 

                                              Govinda and Volunteer helpers 

 

Govinda has designed a rehabilitation plan for Earth quake victims and is looking for international support in terms of money or other resources.

Plan and priorities of HASERA for the rehabilitation of Earth quake victims:

 

1. Supply of safety gears for the cleaning up of broken houses
2. Training for the designing and construction of disaster resistant house
3. Support for the construction of home for needy families
4. Psycho social counselling for the people in shock 

 

 

 

Please help us to help the village get back to stability and restore balance. Let's support a localized, community-based, restorative and sustainable approach to disaster response led by a respected, wise Permaculture teacher and designer!
