After the devastating earthquake on 25 April and 12 May 2015, many of the homes have been rendered unsafe for habitation. Though outwardly they seem intact and strong, yet inside, the cracked beams, cracks extending from corners to windows and doors and the shaky floors, made it impossible to live in.
In Bhakunde Besi, we have identified families who are in need of shelter-homes and in partnership with YMCA Singapore, we worked together to provide the zinc shelters for them. Though once strangers, friendship were forged as the team worked together on the shelters. They visited needy families and encouraged them.
