Rehabilitation of quake victims
With reference to the terrible earthquake that jolted Nepal in April this year, the country has been striving hard to resettle the affected people and to bring everything back to normal. Despite these concerted efforts by the Nepalese government, they have yet to achieve the desired goal. This is mainly because the pace of the recovery and reconstruction process is very slow, mostly due to the lack of supporting recovery systems, as well as the incompetency to execute disaster recovery plans and procedures. In the earthquake hit areas of Nepal, there are hundreds of people lying homeless deprived of proper food, clean water, healthcare, sanitation and other essential facilities. The international communities have been providing all kinds of financial and execution support to the Nepalese. However, the deep-seated bureaucracy in Nepal is playing its cards in a miserable condition, thus affecting the pace of ongoing rescue and relief efforts in affected areas. It’s the time to see beyond ourselves and help those who need our help the most.
