UN Humanitarian Coordinator Visits Flood-Affected Areas
PDF File Size: 32 KB | Download   
The UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Nepal, Mr. Matthew Kahane, visited Banke and Bardiya districts today to asses the rapidly emerging humanitarian needs there, and to express the UN’s solidarity with those affected by the recent floods. The floods have left scores dead and thousands more in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. The UN Population Fund has set up two mobile health clinics in Banke and Bardiya to support basic health care services. They are also pre-positioning care packages for a total of 700 pregnant women and those in need of post-natal care. Meanwhile the World Health Organisation today dispatched medicines, while the World Food Programme is
gearing-up to send food relief if required. The United Nations Development Programme is paying some of the cost of critical transportation and communication costs and stands ready to support longer-term rehabilitation work.
