Yesterday our team returned to Montreal after a three-week mission in Nepal. Their assessment of the current situation is , however, worrying.
In urban and rural areas , many Nepalese are living outside, fearing the buildings would collapse. After seeing the damage caused by a few hours of rain, our team is concerned about the damage that will cause the Monsoon season , which should arrive in June. Problems such as the contamination of drinking water, the spread of waterborn diseases and poor sanitation can occur, which make living conditions mediocre. Also, landslides are expected.
The current mood in Nepal is one of fear, caused by the anticipation of another earthquake and the fear of damage that could cause theMonsoon season .
