Addressing Outstanding Humanitarian Needs in Nepal: A Shared Effort And Responsibility (19 August 2015)
PDF File Size: 102 KB | Download   
Marking the World Humanitarian Day, aid community in Nepal saluted contributions made by good‐willed individuals and communities themselves to saving lives and alleviating the suffering in the aftermath of the back-to-­back earthquakes.The response launched by the Government of Nepal in the immediate aftermath of the disasters has seen significant support from the international and humanitarian communities, and private sector alike. Scores of volunteers remained on the forefront of the response ever since as well.
To date, more than 340,000 families who lost their homes were provided with emergency shelter and another 170,000 households received materials to improve their damaged dwellings. Food assistance was delivered to over 2 million people and some 2 million people continue to benefit from sustained water and sanitation support. Basic medical services were re‐established in 99.8 percent of the community healthcare centres.Yet, the needs remain significant. Hundreds of thousands of survivors still require basic shelter, food and livelihoods support, water and sanitation, and protection. The monsoon season is adding to the complexity of the situation by aggravating the logistical challenges and further exposing the affected to cold and damp weather conditions. Plans are also being put in place to ensure the survival of those affected through the fast-approaching winter.
