SUPPORTING HANDS NEEDED, SPARE YOUR MOMENTS AND HELP


T-Shirt Soul-Match #5

Following the multiple 2016 earthquakes, together with heavy monsoon rainfalls, a devastating landslide resulted in the remote village of Lumle, VDC-6, Kaski District, after midnight on June 31st.

Shiva Devkota (45), a father of three sons (6, 11, and 12) and a teacher here at Siddha Lower Secondary School, providing for a family of ten including his mother, father, wife and three unemployed, student, younger brothers, counted himself and all his family members lucky to survive as they chose the right direction to flee by when the land slid just past their house, collecting his next-door neighbour’s home and family, along with 14 houses, 28 souls, and the village’s 20,000 litre water tank that worsened the catastrophe, raising the already high water and mud flows through the narrow and steep walkways used to escape.

Mr Devkota, that night, lead only a few other brave fathers to rescue buried souls. They bare-handedly managed to save four victims over five hours, one who passed away from injuries hours later before any medical treatment could be received.

The traumatising experience still plays on everyone’s mind today, especially during the summer nights, but Shiva and locals do not believe in relocating their village as the answer. Instead, they hope to see landslide-warning technology implemented in the village soon, but Lumle has received minimal recovery support since.

We have elected him as one of two Souls Helping Souls Delegates for Lumle support, and we are raising financial donations through gofundme.com to expand the currently insufficient water access for everyone here.

Soul Match, your few minutes could be life changing for someone!!!!!!!!!!


Susma ‘Nepal’ is an 18 years young single mother of 10 month old Assha.
Upon falling pregnant, her ex-husband kicked her out of their home.
Having no other family to return to, she became homeless until she met Eku, who offered to lodge her in exchange for help with his seven newly adopted orphans, found in different district’s earthquake rescue shelters.

Suleman “Eku” Sanker, 33, is a well-known stage, movie, tele-vision, and song comedian in Nepal, loved by all age groups, able to spread smiles across all faces, even under the worst of situations.
His house, severely damaged by the earthquake, was deemed unsafe to live in, and once refurbished, would have been too small to accommodate his new family of ten.
With the generous help of multiple friends both in and out of Nepal, Eku was fortunate to move into the slightly bigger place he now struggles to rent for 1,600 rupees per month, inclusive of water and electricity, in Mulpani.
Despite his poor situation and personal low-income from such a difficult-to-live-from profession, his charisma now desperately attempts to keep seven children enrolled at the local school, adding up to 25,000 rupees in schooling, transport, uniform, textbook and other material fees per month.
In addition, Mr Sanker plans to one day build a shelter and establish a foundation for all orphans in Nepal, many who he has already met, but, unfortunately, cannot afford to adopt yet, due to his limited resources.
