HELP REBUILD A KID'S LIFE

SUPPORT A DISASTER VICTIM

HELP REBUILD A KID’S LIFE

+ INTRODUCTION

In November 2016, XTREME Media went to Nepal to film a TV series, entitled “Bangkit”, for MediaCorp Suria Channel. Scheduled to be telecast in March 2017, the documentary explores the process of rebuilding for victims of natural disasters.

Hosted by Khairudin Saharom, we followed a fellow Singaporean who was present during the immediate aftermath of the disaster and helped him reconnect with the survivors after all these years.

It was during the filming of the show when we met Salena and Sandeep.

+ ABOUT THE RECIPIENTS : SALENA & SANDEEP

Amongst the survivors we filmed in Nepal, Selena and Sandeep’s story is the most heart-breaking.

Both siblings are the youngest in our cast – Sandeep is 5 years old, and Salena is 6. They come from a subsistence farming family, raised by their single mother Gauri, and grandfather Oth.

When the earthquake struck their village in Sindulpalchok, Oth, Sandeep, Salena and the eldest sister were trapped in the rubble of their house.

The eldest sister didn’t make it. Oth and Sandeep were rescued alive 4 hours later. While Salena was the last one to be pulled out, more than 6 hours after the earthquake.

Selena suffered the most trauma in the disaster. The earthquake stripped away her innocence and her trust in the world.

When the TV crew met her family, she broke down and hugged her mother and grandfather, she was terrified of everything new in her world right now. She has been living in fears for almost 2 years, and her grandfather and mother are doing their best to take care of her, despite their poor living conditions.

Selena and Sandeep are now attending a village school built by Praramva Nepal. Being in rural Nepal, there is nobody who can help her cope with and manage the post traumatic stress disorder.

Her mother isn’t confident of providing them with a future. Her only hope right now is to see both her children through education, but how exactly will this happen in the next 12 years, she isn’t sure.

+ ABOUT NEPAL EARTHQUAKE 2015

On 25th April 2015 at 11.56 am, 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Kathmandu and rural Nepal

More than 22,000 people were injured and at least 9,000 people were killed during the disaster. More than 500,000 homes were destroyed and an estimated 4 million people remain homeless.

The disaster was described as the worst quake in Nepal’s history, with 8.1 million people directly affected.

  

+ ABOUT CARETAKER : KALPANA CHHETRY

Kalpana Chhetry runs the school that Salena and Sandeep now study in.

She founded NGO Praramva (http://praramvanepal.org) in 2012 to focus on social work in education, health and agriculture for rural Nepalese. But the 2015 Nepal Earthquake changed the course of its direction.

Working with funding from Singapore Red Cross, Praramva has rebuilt school, health posts, temporary shelters for thousands of survivors across the worst-hit areas in rural Nepal.

Kalpana will help administer the contribution from the donors to the two siblings.

+ WHAT DO THE CHILDREN NEED ?

The single-parent family currently survives on subsistence farming and do not have any consistent source of income. Salena and Sandeep are in danger of dropping out of school and becoming destitute.

We hope to raise enough money to support the basic needs of both children FOR A YEAR.

On average, each child needs about SGD70 a month for their basic needs.

  • SGD10 for School Fees and Uniform
  • SGD40 for Food
  • SGD10 for Stationary
  • SGD 10 for Medical Expenses

As we intend to support both Salena and Sandeep for a year, our target for this campaign is SGD1680. (SGD70 for each child per month X 12 months x 2 children = SGD1680)
