Yesterday, 28th April, the Monastery Manager, Pema and Alba Clinic Director distributed 400 kg of rice and 50 kg of lentil daal to 300 people in the local area.
They constructed a tent for 100 people. People from three of the surrounding villages – Dadagaon, Boharatar, and Bistagaun – came to receive the food and use the tent. Many of the local houses in Chapagaon and the surrounding area were destroyed in the earthquake and so many of the locals are living outside in makeshift shelters. They are also very concerned about food shortages.
