Nepal Six Months On: A Race Against Winter
PDF File Size: 327 KB | Download   
(Kathmandu/Bangkok, 23 October 2015) -- Six months after the devastating earthquakes that shook Nepal in April, shelter and food remain top priorities as winter approaches. With the Government of Nepal, humanitarian partners provided emergency shelter to over 700,000 families, but the effect of the coming harsh cold weather is a concern with many people still without permanent durable housing.

“While much has been achieved, the humanitarian community remains committed to meet remaining needs,” said Jamie McGoldrick, Humanitarian Coordinator in Nepal. “With the winter on the way, we must ensure adequate shelter and food security, particularly for more than 80,000 families.” The April and May earthquakes left 8,891 people dead, destroyed more than 600,000 houses and damaged 290,000 houses. During the height of the emergency, some 188,900 people were temporarily displaced.
