Field trip update

Despite the Nepali government declaring the relief phase over, mountain communities are still in fairly dire straits following the spring earthquakes. Her Turn visited Hagam VDC in Sindhupalchok Monday to distribute Her Kits (menstrual hygiene kits) to female students. A landslide struck the village where we stayed overnight. Several homes were destroyed and a family of five injured. Her Turn assisted in the rescue of the injured to Kathmandu for treatment. The landslide also took the village’s temple and water tap and villagers are now concerned about where they’ll get drinking water.

It will be a long summer in many landslide prone mountain communities (many of whom have been instructed by the government to leave their homes and relocate). Please continue to give generously to your organizations of choice and remember that even $5 can make a real difference.
