Tearfund, this week, celebrates the completion of 108 model houses in Palung, in the Makwanpur region of Nepal. Tearfund was one of the first agencies to start building permanent, earthquake-resilient shelters following the 2015 earthquake, which killed nearly 9,000 people, injured 22,000 and left millions homeless.

During the flooding in Bangladesh, Bibha’s house was washed away. With her family she managed to take shelter in a neighbouring house.

Both she and her eldest daughter fell sick with a fever. With the roads destroyed around Kurigram she had no way to get to the health centre to get help.

Bibha’s husband is a labourer, but during monsoon season he doesn’t have any work and the whole family has to survive on only one meal a day. Now their circumstances had just got much worse.
