Rural Community Support
Support to Shree Fashelung Community Service (FSS) group in Dolakha district assisted residents by providing hygiene and sanitation kits to every family (1,250) to prevent the spread of disease soon after the earthquake. In Kathmandu, CORE purchased items for the kits including soap, buckets, and towels. Through FSS, we provided ‘new mother packages’ to the local women’s group to distribute and a small fund to help pregnant women get health care at this very vulnerable time. After the monsoon, we will start support the community requested including training for the women’s group and materials for FSS to help people resettle after they had to move due to landslides caused by the ongoing aftershocks and monsoon rains.
