Bahrabise: School for Deaf Children

It is so sad to see this school in particular lost to the earthquake. We put so much effort into making it “a palace for the poor” with its large rooms, light and airy with parquet floors.  One room was devoted to IT with five computers purchased from the fund raising efforts of David Spear and his “Packet of Three” country and western group that gave all the money from their gigs across the south coast of England. They were also five laptops that had been donated by Wimbledon Primary School thanks to the initiative of Peter and Jane Thomson.

Not only do we want to get the school up and running for the benefit of the deaf children but also in tribute to and recognition of all its supporters who have contributed so generously in the past. We will certainly concentrate on re-establishing the IT room since it was a wonderful medium for the deaf children to access the outside world and to learn skills that may help them find work on leaving school. Sadly, all computer equipment was hurled from the desks and shelves and destroyed.

Ghunsa: School

The school was not in such good shape with most of the 250 children having lessons in temporary learning shelters; only one of the school buildings was easily repairable. Some of the other classrooms and the teachers’ hostel had already been taken down and materials prepared for recycling under CAN’s cash for work scheme. As everywhere else the rebuild has been delayed by the fuel crisis leading to a shortage of cement and other essential materials as well as skilled stonemasons and carpenters. At Ghunsa, and in all the surrounding villages, many houses had collapsed and have been condemned by the government.  A lot of the damage had occurred during the second shock on 12th May when the water table had been disrupted affecting the school and health post water supplies.

Ghunsa: Health Post

This is CAN’s “flagship” health post that stood up well to the earthquake with only minor cracks appearing in the walls. The Nepal Project Group from Yorkshire did a good job patching up the walls with a strong cement mix and also in sanding down and painting all the woodwork with brown gloss paint. They also fixed all the gates and door hinges and latches. Former CAN overseer Govinda and local man Tej are to be congratulated upon the high standard of the building and, in particular, the carpentry and insulation.

Homes in the village are largely destroyed, with most inhabitants living in temporary shelters.
Demolishing, sorting and recycling of building materials is now required.

Health Post
This is badly damaged but possibly repairable as the foundations and roof are largely OK.
Two nurses are providing health care, including a birthing facility, from makeshift temporary timber and tin shelter and a tent. Equipment and medical supplies have been salvaged as much as possible.
