25-4-2015 is a day that will never be forgotten for many Nepalese. The earthquake has caused a lot of damage in several areas. Many Nepalese have lost their home, friends or family and sacred temples. Even to this day, people are rebuilding houses and trying to leave the scare of the earthquake behind.
After the earthquake we have mainly been helping to clear all the rubbles and breaking down houses brick by brick. We saved the bricks so that the owners could reuse their bricks and save money for building a new house.
We built a shelter for a old lady in Bungamati that had lost her house, husband and son in the earthquake and became alone and homeless. With the help of volunteers and donations we were able to built her a shelter and even decorate it a little. We have been visiting her till now and she is still living in our handmade shelter.
We organized some sportdays at the camp of the earthquake victims to entertain the children and give them some ways to release their anxiety and tension. We did some songwriting with a children’s home about their feelings after the earthquake. We have used creative activities to help cope after the earthquake.
