£50k target set to provide living structures in Nepal

The proprietor of a DIY business in Tooting, south London, is urging the public to help him provide 500 semi-permanent living structures made from brick and corrugated sheeting for the roof that cost about £100 each to erect for victims of Nepal’s recent earthquake.

Bobby Singh is the manager at Russell’s Trade & DIY, a Makita distributor. He has already sent rescue workers in the country £7,500 worth of protective equipment, including dust masks, torches, knee pads and gloves.

Having spent a week in Nepal, Mr Singh befriended some local residents who had been made homeless.

Since returning, he has set up a Go Fund Me page to raise at least £50,000 towards the project.
