The village of Ghiling was one of the hardest hit communities in Mustang. We are focusing our energies there at first and have already raised more than $6000 for tin to help construct temporary shelters. We are working in collaboration with Maitri Ratna Nepal, and various individual efforts on the part of Ghiling residents and individual friends of Ghiling, to secure both temporary shelter and resources for longer term rebuilding.
At present, all temporary needs for tents have been met and tin is on its way to the village. Discussions are ongoing about plans for permanent rebuilding.
Additional needs in Mustang include severe damage in the village of Namgyal as well as several schools and religious institutions throughout the district. Once Ghiling's needs are met, and in consultation with local stakeholders, we will be directing aid to these other priorities in Mustang.
