Nepal: A year after the earthquakes
That is where the elderly couple found the support they needed. Fortunately for them, the women’s organization SAATHI, had located their multi-purpose women’s centre, supported by UN Women and in coordination with the Government of Nepal, on the same premises of the district health post, where the Dangals landed. The multi-purpose women’s centres function in five locations, and provide trauma counselling, information, legal and medical referrals. Centre staff asked the district health post to allow the couple to stay on the premises until they could return home.
