MicroAid Rebuilds the Syama Family Home –– 2017

Even years after the 2015 Gorkha earthquake, the situation in Nepal remains dire. Due to a terrible convergence of government inaction, a fuel and materials blockade along the Indian border, and the magnitude of the damage, very little has been done to help the survivors who lost their homes. While other aid organizations are focused on the mountain villages—and have their hands tied by the government bureaucracy—MicroAid is helping families in the urban Kathmandu Valley rebuild and repair their homes so they can return to self-sufficiency.

MicroAid removed the wall and began a complete rebuild of the five-story structure, even removing the top floor for safety
