About the Campaign
In October 2017, DWC team leader Ray Fowell is heading to Nepal to build a house for a Nepalese family. The Family has been selected by Creating Possibilities Nepal and their community as the most deserving.
The Chaudhary family is a family of six whose mother/wife recently died due to blood cancer. The family spent their entire savings on treatment that was ultimately unsuccessful. The children do not atttend school due to financial constraints. The family often fo without food as they have no land to grow crops, and their father’s work as a labourer does not provide sufficient household income.
They live in a mud hut that does not adequately shelter them from the elements. The children say that they are oftren cold or wet during the rainy season. The proposed project will provide a safe home for the family that protects them from weather and provides proper sanitation. Further, having a new house will increase their standing within the community and increase their self-esteem.
