WFP And UNICEF to Provide Relief to 5,000 Displaced By Violence in Nepal
PDF File Size: 563 KB | Download   
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Nepal will provide urgently needed humanitarian food aid and non-food items to 5,000 people displaced by communal violence across two districts in western Nepal. WFP has mobilized more than 70 metric tons of food aid following a request by the Government of Nepal to provide emergency humanitarian food assistance to the
displaced populations gathering in Kapilbastu and Dang districts while UNICEF will
provide tarpaulins, water purification equipment, cooking utensils, hygiene kits and
mosquito nets. A reported 31 people have been killed, dozens injured or missing and thousands displaced after the death of a prominent local figure sparked days of communal violence in the western Terai region bordering India.In addition to non food relief items, UNICEF and partners are working to restore educational systems, providing teaching and learning materials, and psycho-social care and support for traumatized children. Despite UN calls for the Government to provide public security and appeals for calm and tolerance across the diverse communities in the region, some of the affected communities remain volatile. The UN human rights office, OHCHR, continues investigations into the violence and monitoring work of the human rights situation.
It is expected that most of the displaced populations, some of whom have fled to
India, will return to their homes when the situation calms down, except those whose
houses have been completely destroyed.
