First Stage of Deployment Completed in Nepal


And Australian DARTs continue with the vital relief effort …

Dave Tuzewski (South Australia) and Peter Hazell (UK) have handed over to Australians Di Holland (Team Leader) and Jenny Greer, and Michael McKeever from the USA. Their task will be to adapt our deployment to the impact of the forthcoming monsoon using local solutions where possible. Di Holland (from Echuca Vic.) was recently on a long-term deployment with Disaster Aid Australia in Vanuatu.

Brief report on our work to date Building materials and other aid items, including 123 tents have been distributed to previously identified villages. While there is some semblance of 'normality' in Kathmandu, in contrast to the hope that greeted our team, this has now turned to impatience and panic as people, still in need of shelter, face the imminent monsoon. It will bring serious difficulties with many villages now cut off by damaged roads and significant landslides.

DART's on ground in Nepal

The first phase of the deployment in Nepalis being lead by one of our most experienced DART, Dave Tuzewski (Adelaide, Australia), with the support of one of our newest DARTs, Peter Hazell (Norwich, UK).

Communications and transport in Nepal are still a major issue -  we have a brief report from Dave:

Visited 3 of the 5 north eastern villages we had planned. Very rough roads and also delayed by a very inconvenient puncture.
Never the less we identified 3 communities that meet our criteria of being remote, having had little or no aid so far and have been very badly affected by the quakes.
Apps 50 suitable sites were identified as behind available and safe. Many people are prepared to sacrifice their meager agricultural land for shelter and also move their precious livestock. Shelter is very much needed here and with the monsoon not far away time is precious.

The terrain and land use limits where we can safely locate tents. So all sites are spread over a wide and hilly area.

All villages and sites still had electricity, safe drinking water, and basic sanitation. They also have ongoing support from Ashok and rotary.

After a week of disastrous earthquake, people are still waiting for food and shelter; most of them are from remote hard-to-reach areas. Humanitarian reliefs are still beyond the reach especially in remote villages of Kavre, Sindhupalchok and Nuwakot districts where the earthquake hit the most. It is said that in Sindhupalchok only, the casualties might reach about 5,000. In this area, even after 9 days of earthquake, 2 men and 1 woman are rescued.

Disaster Aid International (Australia) has deployed DARTs (Disaster Aid Response Team members) Dianne Holland (Australia) and Wayne Beaumier(USA) to Vanuatu. They  arrived  on Thursday 26 March. Their initial assessment – working within the communities, and with other aid organisations – confirmed the priority was for clean, safe water. That is confirmed in reports by the UN agency OCHA: "110,000 need clean safe drinking water".
