Press Release: Two months on 2.8 million Nepalese still require vital humanitarian assistance
PDF File Size: 67 KB | Download   
Two months after the first of the two devastating earthquakes hit Nepal, some 2.8 million of the people affected continue to require vital humanitarian assistance. Temporary shelter, food and livelihoods support, basic medical care, sanitation and hygiene, and protection remain the key needs as survivors now also face the added challenges posed by damp and cold weather.
To date, some 350,000 tarpaulins were distributed in 14 affected districts, but it is estimated that some 43,500 households have still not received adequate supplies or, in some cases, have not yet been reached. Material assistance, including corrugated iron sheets, is still required for 44,000 of the 125,000 families who began to rebuild their homes, relying mostly on their own means.
Aid agencies estimate that more than 1 million people continue to require food assistance to meet their daily dietary requirements, while 500,000 people need continued support to protect and restore their livelihoods. More than 900,000 people depend on sustained provision of water and sanitation, including 2,000 communities relying on water filtration kits provided by humanitarian partners. Access to safe temporary learning spaces is still required for some 370,000 children. Provision of relief depends now even more on the logistical support, as the monsoon season began.
To date, only US$ 153 million, or 36 per cent, was received against the $422-million humanitarian appeal. An additional $200 million in support to post-earthquakes relief was provided directly to the Government of Nepal on a bilateral and in-kind basis.
