Shelter of Hope

Roshani Bogati Sarki, a class 9 student of Shree Shringery Community School, Lamatar, lives with her mom, Ganga and Rami her younger sister in a makeshift tent after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake made their house inhabitable. “The makeshift tent made out of tarpaulins temporarily shelters us but we don’t know how long it will stay as it already starts to rain. Insects and even a snake go inside our tent, so it is not really safe staying in there,” shared Roshani. “With Rise Nepal’s help, we got the transitional shelter built for us and now we don’t need to worry about the rain and the snakes. Thank you very much to Rise Nepal and the donors for helping us, it is a really big help for us,” she added.

Roshani’s mother, Ganga, who’s a farm labourer earning $3 a day also shared, “With our economic condition, we don’t even know when we will be able to build a house. The transitional shelter that you have provided us will be our refuge for one or maybe for few years. This will be a safer and comfortable place for my family especially for my kids as they will have a better place to study at night. We are really grateful to the volunteers and donors who helped us.”

Rise Nepal’s Volunteers helped Roshani’s family built the transitional shelter.

Roshani and her family modify and prepare the shelter that could be their home for few years until they can build a permanent one.
