Kathmandu, August 6

Chaudhary Foundation — a charitable organisation promoted by Chaudhary Group — handed over 129 transitional shelters to earthquake survivors in Dolalghat of Kavre district, today.

Managing Director of Chaudhary Group Nirvana Chaudhary and Asia Regional Managing Director of LG Chris Yi jointly handed over these shelter homes to the earthquake survivors during an event organised at Dolalghat, today.

The Chaudhary Foundation has sped up building of 10,000 transitional shelters, as committed earlier, for the people who lost their homes in the April 25 earthquake. The Foundation has plans to build 1,000 shelters through its own funds and additional 9,000 shelters through cooperation with donors, as per Chaudhary.

Of the 129 homes donated today, 100 were built through cooperation with LG. The Foundation is building a total of 200 shelter homes in Dolalghat.

The shelters were built as part of the Foundation’s ‘CG Shelter’ project. “Economically vulnerable, disabled, single women, and elderly people are the primary beneficiaries of this project,” informed Chaudhary.

Speaking in the shelter handover function, Yi expressed happiness in being able to build shelters for Nepal’s earthquake survivors in cooperation with the Chaudhary Foundation.

So far, Chaudhary Foundation has donated 206 houses that were built on the outskirts of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur districts of the Kathmandu Valley. Similarly, CG also plans to construct 100 community schools in quake-affected districts and two schools have already been built and handed over in Kavre district.
