Race Against Time to Meet Basic Needs of Quake-survivors in Nepal
PDF File Size: 62 KB | Download   
(Kathmandu/Bangkok, 15 May 2015) The window of opportunity to provide vital relief to people in Nepal affected by the recent earthquakes is closing quickly, as urgent funding requirements remain unmet. To date, barely US$ 59.5 million, or 14 per cent, was received against the $423 million humanitarian appeal, launched by the United Nations and partners on 29 April. “If we don’t act quickly, the implications will be severe,” said Jamie McGoldrick, Humanitarian Coordinator in Nepal. “We can only expect misery, a crippling loss of dignity and the real potential for more deaths especially in the rural and remote areas”. Hundreds of thousands of people remain homeless nearly three weeks after the first quake hit. The most urgent priority is to provide people with roofs over their heads before the monsoon season starts. Achieving this will increase the likelihood of success for other key interventions that aim to assist vulnerable communities to get back on their feet as quickly as possible. Local communities were and continue to be the first responders. Village development committees, private sector, volunteers truly understood their responsibility. The international community were also prompt to show support to the Government-led relief efforts. International search and rescue and medical teams arrived in Nepal within hours of the first earthquake, supported by military and civil defense assets.
