een boer probeert zijn vee te redden
Augustus 2017. Het is regenseizoen in Nepal. De hevige moessonregens zorgen elk jaar voor overstromingen. De overstromingen zijn dit jaar echter extreem. In Duhabi en Falkland zijn de armste inwoners, die hun hutten op de rivieroevers hebben neergezet, als eersten het slachtoffer. Gelukkig is er geen directe schade aan het kinderhuis of de Dipendraschool. Wel heeft men te maken met de overlast door de overstromingen waardoor de verbindingswegen en de overige infrastructuur zijn beschadigd.
"De Nepalese tv toonde beelden van mensen die met huisraad en dieren in de armen door water waden dat tot aan de borst reikt. Het gaat hier om de ernstigste wateroverlast in tien jaar tijd. Hulpverleners leveren met helikopters tenten, voedsel en water af bij burgers die door het hoge water zijn afgesloten van de buitenwereld."

SHC medewerker Puran bericht over de wateroverlast in Dharan en omstreken.
"Recently, a heavy rain for about 3-4 days and nights has caused a great loss in eastern side of Nepal. Dharan has also being victim of flood. Apart from city areas, the outline areas located inside Dharan has greatly affected. Hundreds of people became the victim of flood. There is no contact with the teachers of the Dipendra school because there in no network, no electricity, no communication channels. Everything has been cut off. The reason behind this is the power house itself has been affected due to heavy rainfall. The recent days has become very much difficult to the people. Electricity has not been still given and its been 3 days .. due to which all the gadgets have been stopped working due to lack of charge. All the inverters are off due to low battery and no electricity charge. Likewise, all the mobile phones is also switched off as well as there is no network in prepaid users. There is no electricity in the office as well as the inverter has gone off due to low battery. This is the reason the communication is not going well. Today morning for a minute, I charged my phone from someone's power bank and now I am able to send a email. But if the electricity doesn't appear today, again the phone will be off. The people living in the west part near the Falkland area has been affected as per the information. The Dipendra school is closed now due to rainfall. All proper information is not received. After some time, I will send the report of Falkland area as now, there is no electricity. If electricity will be provided in the city, I will send the recent activities happening in the Falkland area."
