Construction Resumes in Nepal - July 2021
Even though the United States is opening up and returning to some sense of “normal,” a lot of the world is still struggling with the corona-virus pandemic.
Our project in Nepal—rebuilding a home for an earthquake-survivor family—was on hold for the last couple of months as the country went into a third major lockdown. We made the decision, again, to continue to pay our workers so they could feed their families.
Recently, construction work has been allowed to resume, so we are up and running again. Below are some photos of the work site: mixing concrete by hand and passing it along the narrow alley where we are rebuilding a permanent home for a widow and her children.
I want to express my personal gratitude for your support during the past year and a half. MicroAid, and the work we do, would not exist without you. During these unprecedented times—global pandemic, lockdowns, quarantines—it’s hard to imagine what it would be like not to have a place to live. Your contributions have allowed us to save so many families around the world from this horrible fate. All our MicroAid beneficiary families are doing well in their comfortable permanent homes. Disasters don't stop for coronavirus—and neither will MicroAid. We will continue to rebuild houses in Nepal, and we will be starting a project for earthquake-survivor families in Mexico within the next few months. I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. Thank you, again. Sincerely, Jon Ross
