STEUN DE SLACHTOFFERS VAN DE OVERSTROMINGEN IN NEPAL!
Landslides zijn heel gewoon in de bergen van Nepal, maar de landslide van 2 augustus 2014 in Jure, wat ligt in het Sindhupalchowk district ten noordoosten van Kathmandu, was een ongekende ramp. Een berg van vele honderden meters hoog is over een lengte van 1.5 kilometer naar beneden gekomen. Hierdoor werden 2 dorpen (59 huizen) geheel bedolven onder tientallen meters zand en rotsen. Alsof dat niet erg genoeg was heeft deze landslide de Sunkoshi rivier over honderden meters lengte geblokkeerd.

Nepal, the country well known for the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. The country that makes a lasting impression on every visitor thanks to its friendly people, its beautiful and diverse nature, and its cultural and religious heritage. But Nepal is also the poorest country in Asia and one of the poorest countries in the whole world. To change this situation, ICFON supports development projects in Nepal since 1991. ICFON is one of the oldest foundations in the Netherlands focused on Nepal. ICFON funds, monitors and has an advising role for projects conducted by Nepalese partner organizations. Development solutions should have a sustainable impact, therefore ICFON always works with local partners. The people in Nepal themselves know better than anyone else what is needed most and ICFON believes that sustainable improvements of living conditions can only be reached when they are supported by the local population itself. In addition, projects should be planned is a way that after an agreed period the beneficiaries no longer depend on financial aid.
