June 25th 2015, Gamcha – an ultra-poor community in Kirtipur Municipality of Kathmandu was visited by Mr.Yoshinobu Fukasawa, Regional Director at the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP) based in Fukuoka, Japan. He had arrived in Kathmandu to participate in the ‘International Conference on Nepal’s Reconstruction 2015’ held on 25th June, 2015. After the conference, he visited one of the communities where CIUD has supported the communities build their temporary shelters before the monsoon started.

“We feel bad about your loss, and nice to see you living in this temporary shelter, but we realize that this is not the permanent solution. So we will discuss how UN-Habitat can help people in difficult situation like you in future” said Mr. Fukasawa. He also he visited a family (Mr Ramesh, his wife and son who just started his school) living in his temporary shelter.
