Koshi Flood Response Update 6 May 2009 Sunsari District
Abstract:
The majority of Koshi flood-affected displaced households returned to their area of pre-flood origin. However, the flood displaced households from the heavily sanded areas returned with limited shelter, access to basic facilities including drinking water or livelihood support. The WSSDO has committed to establish tube wells throughout the return areas. The District Health Office (DHO) committed to ensuring that health services will be adequately provided in all areas and stated that no further human resources or medicines are required for the general treatments. However, given the severity of the impact of the living conditions, intensive health monitoring is required. Shelter remains the gap and there is an increase of health concerns with the worsening weather conditions, in particular for infants and the elderly. Sanitation also remains a gap in return areas. #FLOODS #NEPALFLOODS2009
