MCA Los Angeles has been in contact with Fr. Joe Thaler of Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers. At the moment Fr. Joe is in Nepal providing aid and relief with other local groups to those affected by the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake on April 25, 2015 followed by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake just two weeks after. He is providing our office with updates every few days of the current situation. Here are some of his words as well as photos:

June 1, 2015 (Part 2): Keeper of the Data/Records…for smooth and transparent deliveries.

Definitely one of the major tasks has been keeping track not only of what is distributed and where but who are the beneficiaries of what…etc..  Shailee and Gopal as members of the Maryknoll Staff working with local Districts/VDC/Wards and villagers have done an excellent job in all aspects of record keeping which has enabled a smooth and transparent mechanism system for distribution.

Actually the work begins way before the distribution actually takes place by having correct and accurate information as to what is required at the point of delivery and then planning the entire process from start to finish. So thanks to Shailee and Gopal and so many people at the local levels who make this happen.

Blessing on all for a jobs well done… Joe
