Madhu is a member of the Camillian Task Force, which is partnering with Caritas Nepal to provide medical care to communities devastated by the earthquake. For the past few weeks, Madhu and 14 fellow team members have hiked mountainous terrain, witnessed landslides and lived in tents, in order to reach the most remote communities in Gorkha, the epicentre of the 25 April earthquake in Nepal.
Award-winning actress and CAFOD supporter Jo Joyner is calling for urgent action after visiting communities in Nepal who were severely affected by April’s earthquake.
Jo, whose work includes No Angels, EastEnders, Ordinary Lies and more recently The Interceptor, travelled to Nepal to see how people are coping three months since the devastating earthquake, and how crucial the work of our local partners has been in providing life-saving aid.

I am Suchana Chaudhary,19 years old from Narayanpur VDC- 8, Syanigaun of Dang district. I am studying in grade 11 in a government school and live with my father, mother, a younger brother and a younger sister. My family has 15 Kattha (0.5 ha) of farm land. I belong to IPM adoption group of Caritas Nepal that has been coordinating to promote vegetable farming with IPM practices. I am able to work with my family in our farm, help them to pursue IPM practices and high value crop farming practices. In the past year, I earned Rs. 90,000- from sales of various vegetables and Rs. 200,000/- from onion sales alone. This income has helped my family meet its basic needs, and also keep some savings for the future.
Mrs. Ganga Raut improved rice grain yield by 45% through IPM practices: I am 36 years, Ganga Rawat from Dakhakwadi village, Pyuthan district. I am a group member of Pragati Farmer Field School Group. I am undertaking farming rice in my 7 Kattha of land. I practice the following important IPM practices: proper nursery management, maintain adequate spacing during transplantation, pest and disease control using right variety of paddy and using biological control methods. In the past year, I earned Rs 30,000/-from sales of rice. Earlier I did not have enough production to sell significant amount of rice. But now my rice yield has increased by about 40% as compared to the past. This increase has allowed me to sell surplus rice. Hence, I am glad that I have enough rice to feed my family and additional income from rice sales to meet our family’s basic needs.
Mr. Suja Rokaya, 41 years old farmer from Alayachour Village of Latikoili VDC, Surkhet has witnessed the significant fluctuation in arrival of monsoon and greater variation of rainfall within the season in recent years which had decreased the rice production and increased food insecurity. In 2011, he became a member of Chadani Small Holder Farmers’ Agriculture Research Group formed by SAFBIN project, Caritas Nepal, where he learned about the global phenomenon of climate change and need for adaptation.The group tested newly released different drought tolerant Sukkha Dhan 2 and Sukkha Dhan 3 to compare with locally resident variety Radha 4 in the year 2012. In the first year of the trial (2012), which was considered to be moderately drought year by research station, the farmers found that the newly introduced Sukkha Dhan 2 and 3 varieties provided better grain yields as compared to Radha 4. The result encouraged, all the members of the group Besides the new varieties they also followed good agriculture practices such as 2-3 seedling per hill, wider spacing 20 x 20cm crop geometry, use of adequate amount of compost and farm yard manure and recommended doses of chemical fertilizer. These practices were demonstrated to them in the initial year by Caritas Nepal. With the new varieties and good practices Mr. Suja Rokaya now harvests around 50 muri (2625kg) of rice from 15 Kattha. This increase in yield is by 65 percent. The yield realized was 5.2 ton/ha compared to 3.15 ton/ha earlier. This has increased his family's rice grain food security from 5 months to 9 Months. Caritas Nepal is glad to see that the farmers
are adapting to climate change by selecting and planting suitable drought tolerant varieties and
by pursuing good practices in rice cultivation.
