Transformation Nepal (TFN) has responded with relief action in many towns and villages, among others in Dhadingbesi, Dhading district. The coordination and cooperation of local churches made this easy. The pastor there was particularly active.
When the mega earthquake hit Nepal on 25th April 2015, we were in the church service. Suddenly the church building started shaking, I announced everyone to stay inside praying and covering the children. It was about a minute for 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Just after this, we asked everyone to evacuate the church building and come to an open place.
I am 73, a granny, with two grandchildren to look after. Their parents are dead. I live for the kids. I had a small house made of wood, stone and mud, but April 25, 2015 changed my life. The mega earthquake snatched away everything, no house now, no shelter, nothing.
When God blessed us with my little child, we were so happy. But the earthquake of 25 April has taken all the happiness away from us. The earthquake has taken our home. Now all that is left is the debris of our house.
I am Nirmala from the Nuwakot district. I had three children - two daughters and one son. My husband is a labourer. He is doing bricklaying helping to build houses in Nuwakot. His work is the only source of income for our family.
