Life Restoration CEDA a non-profit organization, was incorporated in April of 2015 but was conceived in 2002 from the realization that serious social and economic problems existed. LRCEDA addresses the economic needs of low-income individuals and families through sustainable business development and partnerships. We also have a resource and referral department.
Life Restoration will fundamentally form public/private partnerships.
Creating a re-engineered economic development effort that will aggressively recruit new business,
(The Next Entrepreneurial Revolution), help existing businesses expand, and leverage the strong partnerships to stimulate economic growth. Our housing programs will generate growth in tax revenue.
We engage communities by giving a hand up through programs creating workshops and seminars for personal development and sustainability classes for the low-income communities; providing food, clothing, and shelter to those in transition.
Local and National and International Projects
At the scene: Sanjoy Majumder, Kathmandu. After a cold and wet night, the skies have cleared over Kathmandu allowing rescue teams to continue working. But it is becoming harder for the hundreds of thousands sheltering out in the open. Many are staying in very basic tents with little protection.
Water is becoming scarce and there are fears that children in particular could be at risk of disease. Even residents of some of the city's smarter neighborhoods are sleeping on carpets and mattresses outside their homes.
Aid flights are coming in rapidly and in fact Kathmandu airport is running out of parking bays, so many aircraft are having to wait before getting permission to land.
And at the Pashupatinath temple, one of the city's oldest, cremations have been taking place since the morning. As the death toll rises, the authorities are keen on disposing of the bodies as quickly as possible to prevent a health hazard.
