Customs Delays And Taxation Of Aid Stalls Urgent Relief Efforts In Nepal: (8 July, 2015)
PDF File Size: 232 KB | Download   
The Director of Operations for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, John Ging, said that despite all that has been done in past months, urgently needed aid for millions of people affected by the recent earthquakes in Nepal is being delayed from reaching communities due to customs procedures and taxation. Two major earthquakes in May left over 8,800 people dead and tens of thousands injured. Nearly 600,000 houses have been destroyed and another 285,000 damaged, leaving 2.2 million people homeless. The window to reach communities in remote areas is shrinking, as the monsoon season makes mountain villages increasingly inaccessible. While the humanitarian response has provided 2.1 million people with food and 250,000 families with shelter, hundreds of thousands of people still require lifesaving aid.
