Press Release

The Chaudhary Foundation handed over 76 “Transitional Homes” to the earthquake survivors in Lalitpur district’s Karyabinayak Municipality Ward No. 14 Burungchuli and Ward No. 15 Lukundole, on Sunday.

Rahul Chaudhary, Executive Director of the Chaudhary Group, handed over these shelters to the locals amid a ceremony held in Burungchuli on Sunday. These homes were built under the CG Shelter project of the Foundation. Burungchuli and Lukundole are one of the most affected areas from the recent earthquake in Nepal. Economically poor, disabled, single women, and elderly people were the priority recipients of these shelters.

One of the recipients, Del Bahadur Bajgain, 84, was happy to receive a new home towards the final years of his life. He had survived the 1934 earthquake of Nepal. He was excited to have a photo opportunity with Executive Director Chaudhary in front of his newly built home.

This was the third installment of shelter handover from the Chaudhary Foundation, following the handover of 70 shelters in Kathmandu’s Machchhegaun and 60 in Bhaktapur’s Changunarayan.

Binod Chaudhary, Chairman of the Chaudhary Foundation, expressed happiness on being able to handover CG Shelter homes to the earthquake survivors.

“The smile I see on the faces of the earthquake survivors when they enter these shelter homes gives me great happiness,” he said. “We are working to bring smiles on the faces of as many earthquake survivors as we can. We will be handing over more CG shelters in near future.”

On May 8, the Foundation had announced relief plan to build 1000 transitional homes for the survivors of the April 2015 earthquake. The Foundation had also announced that it would coordinate with donors to build additional 9000 homes.

The building process of transitional shelters has already started in Kavre, Sindhupalchok, Ramechhap, Gorkha, and Dhading districts.
