On the occasion of his visit to Nepal following the devastating earthquakes and humanitarian response, Dr Muller (Director of Caritas International) also visited Fulpingkot, one of PHASE Nepal’s core project areas. With support from Caritas Germany and Caritas Austria, PHASE Nepal provided emergency relief items in Fulpingkot and helped people construct temporary shelters.
Dr Mueller was visiting to understand the situation on the ground and to see first-hand what the current situation for local people affected by the earthquake looks like. PHASE staff facilitated conversations for the Caritas team with local framers, health workers and teachers.
Dr Mueller shared some of his previous experiences in emergency shelter work and discussed with local people what their priorities are. Hopefully, PHASE and Caritas can work together in this area in the near future to assist people in recovery from devastation the earthquake brought to their lives.
