Jajarkot, one of the western remote parts of Nepal, has been facing an outbreak of Cholera and diarrhoeal diseases claiming lives of hundreds of people and affecting thousands of people. As per the Nepal government and mainstream media, there was death toll reaching 450 people within a span of one week. The major reasons found were lack of drinkable water, lack of practice of defeacation in toilets and moreover the lack of knowledge of people on value of sanitation. With integration of above mentioned three components, the project is supposed to save lives of hundreds of people that can be projected as per the nature of epidemics or outbreak hitting almost every year.Under this project, 500 families in the most affected village will be covered with drinking water supply, hygenic toilets and proper knowledge on the use and value of these facilities. We expect to drastically reduce the magnitude of problem of the outbreak in the served community in the years to come.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
