Allowance for Quake-Affected Mothers

Posted on Updated on

We finally found someone willing to provide a small monthly allowance for Buti Lopchan Tamang (aka Kali Ghising) from Bhorle VDC, Ward No. 3, Rasuwa. Buti’s husband was killed in the quake and her house was completely destroyed. She has no regular source of income and is worried how she will support her two children. Her younger child is only a few months old.

Smita Shrestha Nepali, who lives in Kathmandu, has kindly agreed to provide a monthly allowance for Buti. We met Buti on 8 August 2015 in Kalikasthan, Rasuwa and handed over a cash allowance of NPR 5000 (for two months). Subsequent allowances will be sent to her directly via a money transfer agency, and the local coordinator in Kalikasthan will help her withdraw it. Thank you, Smita, for your valuable support.

There are many more women who are living in harsh conditions and could benefit from a small monthly allowance. Please let us know if you or anyone you know would be willing to support them.
