Emergency humanitarian relief would be our main focus at this critical stage, which include: 1. to provide temporary shelter, drinking water, food and medicine aids to the local villagers plus to have subsidiary to affected families. 2. to rebuild houses, school and to ensure villagers can have morning farming during monsoon season.
As we are still awaiting for the updates on the situation and how worse the village affected in order to identity the most desperate needs, hence we would require a bit more time to on the consolidation and evaluation. Please stay tune for the updates.
Furthermore, we received a few enquiries of providing voluntary support on the rebuild including forming voluntary groups, as mentioned, the local situation is uncertain, hence please wait till further updates.
