Webinar on long-term recovery in Nepal
May 6, 2015
As Nepal digs out after the catastrophic earthquake, first responders have mobilized, but Nepal’s long-term recovery needs remain vast and uncertain, according to experts who took part in a May 1 webinar hosted by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, the Council on Foundations, and The Asia Foundation. “It’s my fear that people who are already homeless will be internal refugees for six to nine months,” said George Varughese, The Asia Foundation’s country representative, who lived through the quake with his family in Kathmandu. Other webinar participants included Joel Charny, vice-president of humanitarian policy and practice at InterAction, and Karen Keating Ansara, fund advisor, Ansara Family Fund at the Boston Foundation.
