Affordable Construction, Healthcare -

Kathmandu, Nepal<br /><br /> <h2>Why</h2><br /> <ul><br /> <li class="li3">Nepal has just experienced a series of devastating earthquakes in the last few months.</li><br /> <li class="li3">Numerous organisations have tendered relief. However, relief has been in the form of food packets and temporary shelters. This relief, though vital, is not sustainable. What is required is long-term, permanent solutions.</li><br /> <li class="li3">Samarpan Foundation is in a position to deliver permanent, seismic-resistant housing to the people of Nepal. In September 2014, we built and laboratory tested permanent housing that can withstand up to 9.8 Richter seismic activity.</li><br /> </ul><br /> <h2>Innovative Construction</h2><br /> <ul><br /> <li>As we are building in both urban and rural areas, the availability of construction materials varies.</li><br /> <li>Our innovative method of construction allows for the incorporation of locally-available materials, such as boulders, clay bricks and rocks, with fish net and cement.</li><br /> </ul><br /> <h2>Current Status</h2><br /> <ul><br /> <li>At present, we are constructing individual homes and free public-outreach clinics in the seismic-affected zones.</li><br /> </ul><br /> <br /><br /><br /> <h3>&nbsp;</h3>
