Teachers’ solidarity makes a difference in post-quake Nepal

Miriam Palacios of Oxfam Canada came to speak to the BCTF Executive Committee October 22, 2015, offering an update on the amazing humanitarian work they are doing in Nepal following the massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck last April 25. Oxfam has assisted more than 445,000 people, with emergency food and shelter, water and sanitation, rice and seeds, and much more.

Palacios also presented the BCTF with a thank-you plaque in recognition of the Federation's significant support for the relief work. The plaque has a beautiful photo of a Nepalese mother and her baby daughter, who was born only one hour after the earthquake hit.
