Blankets for earthquake survivors!

         Posted on November 29, 2022 under News

With the onset of winter, it is even more difficult for families displaced by the recent earthquake in Doti who are compelled to spend the night outside their houses in temporary tents. Especially pregnant women, children, and senior citizens have to face a hard time. To cope with the temperatures dropping, UMN on Sunday provided 200 warm blankets worth NPR 279,000 (approx. USD 2,133) to the rural municipality to distribute it to the earthquake-affected families. 

A 6.6-magnitude earthquake had struck Purbichauki Rural Municipality around 2:12 a.m. on 9 November causing death of six and leaving eight injured. Similarly, an aftershock of 5.03 magnitude that occurred on 12 November damaged 28 houses and partially damaged over 100 houses. 

Our prayers go out to the families for their quick recuperation.
