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.
