STH Activities - 4 (How to prepare a 'Family Survival Kit' published in 'Himalaya Darpan')

Himalaya Darpan is the largest local daily with a circulation of over 40,000 in this region (a large part of which is affected by landslides).
They have agreed to allow STH to publish articles regularly regarding the landslide hazards ....the first one appeared today and it is about keeping a family survival kit handy in landslide prone areas so that people do not waste valuable time in an emergency and are able to survive on their own for 2-3 days until help arrives.

The article (in Nepali) is placed above.

My thanks to the Darpan team for giving space to highlight the most serious environmental challenge facing us who live in this region - landslides.

Good to see the emergency Kit getting wide circulation in the hills.
