舊 回覆: 六月到尼泊爾村莊救援,極力尋求各方幫忙! - 2015-05-02, 13:02
Namaste!我是來自香港的Samantha,本來只是名自己私下愛海外遊愛到處感受文化的女生,如今計劃6月出發到尼泊爾,親自支援因地震而流離失所的村民,所以設立此基金以籌款。

這基金還有另外一位籌辦者,他是來自英國的爺爺Graham Rawlinson(這基金很棒的名字是他起的)。我和Graham認識於2013年夏天的尼泊爾,我們在在加德滿都(Kathmandu)約20公里外的一條小村的小學義教,村叫Duwakot,鄰近古城巴克培普爾(Bhaktapur),住在同一家村民的家,受到有如家人的愛護。

我2014年春天也有再回去尼泊爾,如今我們住過的村莊,跟連接的好幾條村莊如Changu和Jhauhkel等,有近五百個家庭流離失所,約有六百三十戶家園全毀,孩子的學校一半塌下,本來就有很多學生本來就受義工支助,才得以有上學的機會,如今未知什麼時候再度開課。地震後的四五日,有村民告訴我,數百個村民兩日沒吃過飯,平常較有收入穩定的,家裡就煮逾八十人的飯,或去買帳篷。

這村民對前來幫忙的外國人格外好客,山上村莊散落地住了許多平日已經三餐不繼的居民。國際組織雖在第三世界已落力付出,但沒法接觸到每個社區,部份住在山上,連交通工具都欠缺的居民要下山得到協助根本不可能。至於在我親身經驗、所見所聞中,本地組織不能盡信,當地貪污嚴重,畢竟每人都沒法確保自己的將來,每人都會先為自己謀福利,但這也代表本來能有力達到改善的金額,白白分進一些組織負責人口袋裡。

Graham Rawlinson每年也在當地中小學義教,地震發生前已全數贊助數名學生至大學的學費,曾為學校建了又建兩年的圖書館(如今不知塌了沒)。 說Graham是爺爺因為他已是個七十多歲的爺爺了(幸好他讀不明白中文),也不該要他在地震發生後一兩個月就回去,但計劃暑假回去好一段日子,所以我們將接力管住基金,持續重建學校。

我懂得村的路,有可靠的村民,也在當地有義工經驗,了解當地居民生活。若希望自己曾到過的村莊得到幫忙,我相信由自己做起。我希望能透過今次以即時援助和長期重建兼備的計劃,在尼國人民最需要協助時,給予他們曾給過外國人同等的愛和熱情。

我希望在災情稍緩才回去,不徒添當地災情包袱,
所以暫定6月出發,

1)先送物資到痛失家園的家庭,基本所需如食物、 帳篷、 衣物等,
許多家庭不旦在地震中失去數十年來棲身之地,所有財產物品全失,同樣沒食物充飢。村民許多本就無業,即使擁有工作,根本無法擁有足夠收入來應對將來。

2)視察當地學校的破壞情況,一直跟校長、老師鑽研重建的可行性和長遠計劃,希望可持續讓有意幫忙的義工參與

現正急需!!

1)捐款,因所需物資如衣服、 被窩、 食物等,都得以錢來買,而且最直接能幫忙村民的途徑,就是以親眼目睹的情況,為他們提供恰當協助,而這需要先在親眼見面,我在當地再作決定

出發前如果基金容許,還是希望稍作調動,將小金額捐款給當地可信村民,因為村民連基本食物所需條件都沒有,等到6月實在太久,在我抵達後,就可讓大家知道實際情況

捐款戶口是:匯豐銀行,809-282874-292 TANG TSZ YING
因為是個人戶口,請大家善心解囊後,短訊告一告訴我捐贈了的金額,好讓我紀錄

我不屬任何慈善機構,只是個人名義,
我明白大家對我三九唔識七,捐款更難,
所以我除了努力在這裡讓大家知道受幫助的家庭和村民外,
也絕對會盡力將款項交代清楚,會有公共文件,如仔細的捐贈表,紀錄大家的名字和獨立捐款,和支出表,來讓大家知道錢花了去哪裡

2)物資籌集,最歡迎厚衣服,被窩,帳篷
(鑑於很多朋友說可以捐衣服,我將後來另行解釋,其實衣服捐贈不太理想,所以只限保暖大衣)

物資籌集直接聯絡我就可了!

尼國現正求助的,還有數千萬條村莊,有的比我去的更荒蕪,更人跡罕至,
但因為我跟其他村落不熟悉,沒信心可以去建立長遠的重建計劃,
當然願意幫忙我們很好,但若沒法捐款的,或對其他機構更有興趣幫忙的,
希望也可以在這組群裡得到一點點我在當地的故事和消息。
願尼泊爾不再是新聞焦點時,仍不被外間遺忘。謝謝。

Namaste! I'm Samantha from Hong Kong - a girl who loves travelling and learning different cultures. Now I'm planning to go to Nepal in June this year, supporting the victims who lost their homes. One Village Focus Funds is set up for this reason.

I met the other co-funder of the fund, Graham Rawlinson (who came up with the amazing name of this fund), in Nepal back in the Summer of 2013. We taught in a little village called Duwakot, which is 20km from Kathmandu and near the ancient city Bhaktapur. We stayed in a villager's house and were treated like family members. I went back to Nepal during Summer, 2014.

The villages we stayed in, along with other connecting villages like Changu and Jhaukel, are greattly destroyed. Nearly 500 families lost their homes and around 630 houses were destroyed. The kids managed to go to school because of the help of the volunteers, but half of the school is collapsed now. No one knows when the kids will be able to go to school again. A few days after the earthquake, I was told by a villager that hundreds of them hadn't eaten since the disaster took place. Those who have a steady income began to cook food for more than 80 people, or to buy tents for the needed.

The villagers are hospitable to foreigners who travel to help them. Before the disaster happened, the village was already scattered with people who had difficulties feeding themselves. Despite the fact that international organizations have been working to improve the living conditions of developing countries, they are unable to reach each and every community in need. Some of the needed live on mountains and are isolated from transportation, it is completely impossible for them to receive assistance. From what I saw during my visits, we cannot trust the local organizations completely. Corruption is a serious problem in Nepal. It is understandable that when no one can ensure their own future, individuals would try to secure their own benefits first. However, money that are supposed to reach the needy end up in someone else's pockets usually.

Graham Rawlinson does voluntary teaching in the primary and secondary schools in Nepal every year. Before the earthquake, he already sponsored several students' university school fees and assisted in the construction of the school library (we are not sure whether it has collapsed or not). Graham is in his 60s and he would not be able to go in June. He is planning to go back for a period of time during Summer. We will safeguard the funds and continuously contribute to the reconstruction of the school.

Knowing how to get around in the villages and having connections with reliable villagers, my volunteer experiences help me to understand the lives of the locals there. I wish to support the people in Nepal by providing them with immediate help and long-term reconstruction plans.

I will go to the affected areas when the situation is less severe, in order not to hinder the local's work. I will tentatively leave for Nepal in June.

1) We will first send needed materials to families who lost their homes, the materials include: food, tents, clothes, etc.

Many families lost their homes of decades during the earthquake, with all their properties gone and have no food at all.

2) Assess the degree of destruction of the local school, and develop a feasible, long-term plan to rebuild the schoo. We hope to let more interested volunteers join us in this project.

What we need right now:

1) Cash donation:
As money is needed to buy clothes, blankets, food, etc., and is the most direct way to help the villagers. We understand that the best way is the assess the situation before we decide how we are going to allocation the funds. But as the villagers do not even have money for food right now, we wish to send them a small amount of money to ease the situation. I will report the exact situation after arrive in Nepal in June.

Account: HSBC 809-282874-292 TANG TSZ YING

This is a personal bank account and I understand it requires one's trust to make a donation. There will be a detailed list of donations, with name of the donar and the amount stated clearly, as well as a detailed account of how we spend the money.

2) Materials: thick clothes, duvets/blankets/ tents

(Since many friends have said that they can donate clothes, I will explain in another post. But in brief, clothes donation isn't the most ideal, so we are only accepting jackets/coats that can keep warm)
Please contact me directly if you would like to donate materials.

There are many villages in Nepal that are in great need for help at the moment. An individual's effort is limited but I wish to help as much as I can. Even if you cannot make any donation or would like to help out at other organizations, I still hope that the group can helps you understand more about what's going on in Nepal.

( A VERY BIG THANKS to Queenie who offer a hand to translate this whooooole bunch of words!!!!! )
