UNICEF Nepal Humanitarian Situation Report 12, 27 May 2015
Abstract:
122 Child Friendly Spaces (CFS) are now set up by the Education and Protection clusters for displaced communities, benefiting 12,200 affected children in Sindhupalchowk, Dhading, Kavre, Gorkha, Sindhuli, Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur districts. Over 10,500 mothers have received counselling in exclusive breastfeeding and dangers on artificial feeding through inter- personal counselling in 14 most affected districts. Fifteen mother- baby sites have been established in small scattered community camps to provide a convenient space for mothers to breastfeed and receive counselling on infant feeding. 4,064 parents and children have been provided with specialized psychosocial support including Psychosocial First Aid (PFA). UNICEF also supports 28 Counsellors in the 14 affected districts. So as to scale up programme delivery in the worst affected areas, UNICEF is to open 5 sub-offices in Gorkha, Nuwakot, Kathmandu, Sindhuplachowk and Dolakha districts with 60 new positions. UNICEF is developing a contingency plan to respond to a possible deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the 14 most earthquake-affected districts and in another 12 flood-prone districts as a result of the approaching monsoon season. UNICEF is moving forward to implement a top up cash transfer to the most vulnerable populations in 11 earthquake affected districts. On the occasion of the one month commemoration of the earthquake, UNICEF issued on 25 May a special humanitarian report highlighting programme achievements, constraints and the way forward.
