Displaced Children Camp - Dolakha ! (a child-friendly zone for earthquake victims). Thanks to Caritas, NGN, Ama Ghar, BalMandir-Dolakha, DCWB, etc...

Field Report from Himmat Maskey and the team : Around 5 o'clock yesterday, we reached Dolakha. Before we arrived, there was a huge and violent demonstration of the locals who need relief materials. Some materials of the UN and big organisations was misused and they left the place. We stopped for a while just before Dolakha waiting for a more peaceful situation... 


Later we moved and could convince locals we are coming with real support. We reached the local office of Balmandir (gov office caring for children) and we could stock our materials and managed the tents. Today morning we started the camp and assessement of the situation (to bring additional materials). There is a correct coordination with the CDO office, DCWB, DDC, Police and ward office. 





About Dolakha itself, the situation is very bad. More than 90 % of the small town is destroyed, same with Charikot on the way. Urgent needs : mineral water jars, water purification tabs, wire for electricity or generator, water tank...  Many Children reached the camp and will benefit from medical support, counselling, games, basic informal education, etc...
