Nature has it’s own way to react upon our actions . This time nature acted harsh on the Terai region of Nepal. Due to heavy and regular rain fall of three days the districts like Jhapa, Sunshari, Chitwan, Rautahat etc . were flooded . More than 50 people died and 1000’s of people were homeless. In this harsh times the humanity towards the lives of Terai was really important and that’s why Team LIFA stood upon it.
The first technical step of Team LIFA towards helping people of Terai was to create awareness among the people for helping the lives of Terai , and we created a website www.helpterai.com.
The website was not enough for the help that we could possibly do , therefore we started a campaign of 3 days in Nepal College Of Information Technology and 1 day in Pulchowk Campus, “LIFA for Flood Victims”. In this campaign we collected the foods, clothes, medicines and sanitation things and stored it in a store house situated in Anamnagar, Kathmandu. Everyday we would stay at one place at college ground from 7:00 AM to 1:30 PM and we would collect things. The college van helped us to carry those things from college to store house . And every night we’d sort things so it could be managed.
The second day of the campaign we organized a small musical program in Patan Darbar Square to collect fund for flood victims and made around Rs. 7,200 in one and half hour . When the 3 days campaign was over we had almost 2 lakh worth of things that we could provide to victims.
On fourth day we sent one truck load of things to Siraha and Sapthari through Dhurmus Suntali foundation . We still had one more truck of goods left , so two of our members decided to go Sarlahi where people are mostly effected and distribute the goods there by collaborating with local government , today members of Team LIFA went to Sarlahi and distributed the relief goods to flood victims in Sarlahi.
We know we could not do much but we believe that all the little effort towards humanity is equally important as all the greater effort. We gave the best from our side and every one should do best from theirs.
