Field Note #155: The Foundation of Community

The Wine To Water Nepal team went to the villages of the Madi municipality which was affected by flooding. SAWYER filters were the relief technology that was distributed to 70 households.

When we first reached there, we saw the heart wrenching view of torn houses and people desperately waiting for relief materials. But on the positive side, this kind of human crisis brought the goodness out of most people from all across the nation. Communities were packed with non-profit organizations and volunteers with relief materials. Everyone came together in moment of crisis and shared whatever they could. Once again the foundation of community—sharing—came to light. People shared food, water and clothes. Some shared their personal strength. From our side, we shared technology which is still being used by the flood victims.
