Starting in John O'Groats on 13 July 2016 I have now walked the length of the country, arriving in Lands End on 21 September 2016, a total of 1080 miles. All to raise money for All Hands Project Nuwakot in Nepal.
Following the devastating 7.8 earthquake that hit Nepal on 25 April 2015, All Hands Volunteers were on the ground within 48 hours. They quickly identified communities most in need and immediately began helping those who had been affected. For six months their teams assisted in safely demolishing unsafe buildings and removing rubble to enable communities to rebuild. In addition, they built transitional shelters, resilient homes and temporary learning centres to give children a safe space following the disaster.
Nuwakot was one of the worst hit areas, and its remoteness has hampered its recovery. But All Hands Volunteers are there – rebuilding schools and homes, and working with the local communities to give them back their hope.
So please dig deep and sponsor me!
* if you are a UK tax payer, the UK government will also Gift Aid an additional 25% to all donations made via Just Giving.
100% of the money raised will go directly to All Hands Project Nuwakot, where teams on the ground are ready to distribute your donations to where they are needed most. To give you an idea of how your money could be spent:
> £4500 will pay for a disaster resilient home for a family who have lost their home and are living in temporary accommodation.
> £2000 pays for a water filtration system for a new school, enabling the school children to have access to safe water.
> £30 pays for a wheelbarrow to help clear out the rubble, and help with the rebuild.
> £5 pays for a solar lamp so that the children can have a light to study with when they are at home.
Since All Hands arrived in Nuwakot shortly after the earthquake – 74 sites have been accessed, 2 schools and 65 homes have been completed. There is still so much to do but work is continuing; with All Hands expected to remain in Nuwakot helping with the rebuild for a further 2-3 years.
