PDF File Size: 208 KB | Download   
Nepal – IOM’s distribution of Corrugated Galvanized Iron (CGI) sheets in Barhabise Village Development Committee (VDC), Sindhupalchowk District, continues despite temporary road closures in Jurey due to a recent landslide caused by the monsoon rain. Jurey, which is only 10km away from Barhabise town, is an area where a massive landslide killed more than 156 people in August 2014. “It was not possible for trucks to get in the Barhabise town for a couple of days because of the road closures,” said Yamanta Niroula, IOM Shelter Programme Engineer in charge of the distribution in Barhabise VDC. “Still, we are more than half way through the distribution and as the blocked road is cleared now, we should be able to cover the remaining families within this week,” he added. By the end of this week, 1,457 families living in nine wards of Barhabise VDC are expected to receive 20,398 CGI sheets worth over USD 200,000 funded by the Japanese government. IOM provides each family 14 CGI sheets to support reconstruction efforts and protect them from the monsoon. Though IOM normally distributes relief items through 30 implementing partners which consist of international and local NGOs, this time the distribution was conducted directly by IOM.
