85 kilometres away from Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County, Liberia, Ceyah’s population is around 5,000. Yet, unbelievably, before 2015 Ceyah had no primary healthcare facilities.[1] Indeed, the closest available clinic was in Goblee, 30 kilometres away. As most community members use motorbikes or scooters as their primary mode of transport, travelling on poor quality and poorly networked roads for medical aid further risked the welfare of the infirm, including the elderly, pregnant women and children.

In April 2015, Nepal was devastated by the worst earthquake to strike the country in more than 80 years. Over a quarter of the population – approximately 8 million people – were affected by the disaster. The death toll exceeded 5,500 with more than 10,000 people also injured. In addition, over 500,000 homes were destroyed and around 279,000 were damaged[1]. This has left many people homeless, injured or without basic services. Large sections of the population have become totally reliant upon aid to provide food and shelter. In the aftermath of the earthquake, Integrity Action’s partner in Nepal, Campaign for Human Rights and Social Transformation (CAHURAST), has been working to ensure that victims receive this vital support.

For years the people of Bazartete have lived without electricity. During the time that Indonesia occupied East Timor, from December 1975 to October 1999, there was no electricity in the sub-district of Bazartete for any households and in recent years just one generator has been brought to Bazartete, which has been used by the police for security reasons. After voting for independence in the 1999 referendum, which was surrounded by bloodshed, towns and infrastructure was destroyed and therefore the connection of major villages within Bazartete to the national grid was never a focus.
