Originally published


Welcome to the thirty-second issue of OPEN MIC NEPAL bulletin. The Open Mic project captures rumours and perceptions on the ground to eliminate information gaps between the media, humanitarian agencies and local people. By providing local media and outreach workers with facts, Open Mic aims to create a better understanding of the needs of the earthquake-affected communities and to debunk rumours before they can do any harm.

This week's issue contains:

  • Concerns about the scarcity of drinking water
  • Rumours about the death of livestock from ingesting caterpillars
  • Rumours that the non-government organisations can't support housing reconstruction
  • Concerns about the reconstruction of local historical and cultural heritage
