You're building a house in Nepal
Did you know that MicroAid was in the middle of rebuilding a severely damaged house for an earthquake-survivor family in Nepal before the world-wide lockdown?
Luckily, the family has been safe and healthy in their temporary location. In Nepal, during this lockdown, you can only leave your house between 6am and 8am and 5pm and 7pm to go to the market. That’s it! And the rules are rigidly enforced at police checkpoints throughout the country.
But thanks to the ingenuity and dedication of our local project manager and crew, we have resumed the work.
We are taking all possible precautions, including distributing N-95 masks to our workers, which I had brought to Nepal last year. Hopefully, we can finish the house without any other interruptions and the family can move back in soon.
Now, more than ever, we can understand the need for a safe and comfortable permanent home—in which to lockdown and to live a life.
So, from all our beneficiary families around the world and from me: Thank you for caring about others when we, ourselves, are suffering, too. It’s the incredible capacity of the human spirit.
Wishing us all health and peace of mind.
