The devastating earthquakes of magnitude 7.8 and 7.3 that struck Nepal in April and May 2015 caused 8,891 casualties and 22,302 injuries. Similarly, 608,155 residential buildings were completely destroyed while 298,998 were partially damaged.
As most of the houses were destroyed by the quake rendering them beyond repair, Laxmi Praisthan concentrated its activities towards their rehabilitation with the construction of permanent and feasible houses for victims. Laxmi Pratisthan started the rebuilding project, which is aimed for supporting the earthquake victims of Siwalaya V.D.C in Kavre district. With support and cooperation from Glasgow Nepalese Association, Mod Chana Phai Foundation Thailand and Society of American Nepalese Nurse (SANN) we have already started the first phase of reconstruction project in which 31 houses are currently under construction.
