Earthquake-affected families in six VDCs of Lamjung have got pens and sheds for their cattle.
Most of the villagers were compelled to keep their cattle under the open sky after the devastating quakes last year destroyed their houses and sheds. Aasharam Gurung of Gauda-4 said he shifted his cattle to a shed after a donor agency helped them to construct the structures.
Samarth-NMDP, a five-year DFID-funded programme, helped villagers construct sheds in Bichaur, Dudhpokhari, Illampokhari, Gaunda, Pachok and Kolki. Engineer Keshari Prasad Bhatta said 300 pens and sheds were built for the needy people in remote villages by following the government-prescribed designs and standards.
Rishiram Duwadi of Bichaur-1 said they used locally available materials to construct pens and sheds. “We have been relieved after the donor agency helped us construct the sheds,” said Duwadi.
