Nepal: Daunting Challenges of Earthquake Aftermath (Episode #722)

KQED World: Tue, Jun 2, 2015 -- 4:00 AM

Global Numbers: Disaster Aid - The number of natural disasters and disasters triggered by human activity has tripled since the 1970s. One of the first things people in a disaster area need is a roof over their heads. The United Nations Refugee Agency, the UNHCR, wants to have more than 50,000 tents readily available in future. Storage facilities for them have already been set up in Dubai, Copenhagen and Durban. Nepal: Difficulties in Supplying Relief to the Mountains - In the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in Nepal, getting aid to people in isolated mountain villages is of prime importance and has been especially difficult to get relief supplies to people in isolated mountain villages. To do so, all vehicles available are needed. Anyone wanting to rent a car in Kathmandu has to drive relief supplies to earthquake-hit regions in return. Our reporter Manuel O zcerkes makes the trek to bring tents and sleeping mats to Bansbari, a village in the Sindhupalchok district, for a local aid organization. Global Living Room: Belize - Ivette Cob lives with her husband and four sons in Sarteneja, a village with a population of 2,000 in northeastern Belize. The village has been in existence since the time of the Mayas. Armenia: Filming to Protect Nature - With nearly 100 different landscapes and more than 7,000 species, the South Caucasus is one of the world's biodiversity hot spots. But habitats are endangered. Forests are being illegally clear cut, and intensive farming and poaching are putting that biodiversity at risk. An environmentalist who is also a documentary filmmaker wanted to change that and teach children and teenagers in particular to protect the environment. They've shot their own nature films, which have already been shown at international festivals. Zambia: Teaching via Radio - In Zambia, children who live in rural areas with their families have scarcely any chance of getting an education. For most of them even the nearest school is much too far away. In addition, they lack the money for school uniforms and books. Chikuni Radio has been bringing schooling to these children for fifteen years. It now reaches 2,000 children a year in 18 remote villages.
