Humanitarian Agencies Launch Flash Appeal For Flood-Affected In Nepal
PDF File Size: 23 KB | Download   
The United Nations and its humanitarian partners issued an appeal today in response to flooding in the east of the country. The appeal seeks $15.5 million to cover the needs of at least 70,000 people over the next six months.The flooding occurred in eastern Nepal, when the Koshi River, one of the largest river basins in Asia, breached its eastern embankment on 18 August. The force of the water led to 80% of
the river changing its course, rendering parts of the flooded areas completely inaccessible. The flooding has severely impacted upon an already vulnerable population. Those displaced by the flooding are currently staying in temporary shelter sites across Sunsari and Saptari districts. There are 61 shelter sites, many of which are schools, and a number of families are also staying in ad hoc settlements, including along the river embankment and the east-west highway. A still unknown number of people are residing with host families across both districts, and an undetermined number of Indians from Birpur, Lalpur and Fatehpur in Bihar state have been displaced to Nepal due to floods in Bihar.
