Briddhim is a tiny Tibetan village in the North of Rasuwa District, about 56 km North of Kathandu, the capital of Nepal.
The terrible earthquake from April 2015 had almost completely destroyed the village and today the situation of the people there is still critical. Not all the houses of those who have survived,could be rebuilt yet. Many still live in provisional hovels.
Today the village has a population of only about 60 people, mostly elder people, because there is no school, almost no sources of income, so that young people leave for bigger cities.
The people in Briddhim live on farming, some find work in house construction and as trekking guides for tourists, but since the terrible earthquake in 2015 nothing stayed the same. The humble incomes don’t last even for the most necessary. The village is short of everything and it is impossible to rebuild a house without subsidy.
We want to do something about that desperate situation of the people in Briddhim, because even years after the earthquake many of the villagers are living under unimaginable hard conditions.
Our charitable association Tibet Tshoesem e.V. is supporting Tibetans and Nepalese – children, old people, poor families, monks and nuns – in Nepal and Northern India with sponsorships and special aid projects.
Since project start for Briddhim we have received many donations and the houses of five families could be rebuild. Our team members on-site provide us on a daily basis with information and photos. They hand over the donations and document everything. We consider the transparency of our aid projects as very important.
So far we are running more than 110 sponsorships for the people in Briddhim VDC. Due to this support children can get a school education. Most families cannot afford the school fees.
Currently we are looking for sponsors for more children and elder people and we also try to help more families to rebuild their houses.
The families cannot afford to pay the material or the works. Therefore we urgently need support and want to ask for your donation.
The donations will be delivered by 100 % through our member on-site to the people in need. Your help will get there! Please support this project and help us to provide houses for this family that fit for human habitation.
