Nepal Situation Report #13 (17 June 2015)
Abstract:
Food and cash distributions in Phase II of WFP’s operation are underway in 12 of the severely affected districts. In this phase, 1.15 million people will receive rice, pulses and oil for 20 days. For nutritionally vulnerable children under two years, pregnant women and nursing mothers, WFP is providing supplementary foods to ensure their nutrition status does not deteriorate. To meet food needs in Makwanpur and Sindhuli districts, the affected populations are receiving cash in exchange for work such as clearing debris and preparing fields for the planting season. Through its long-standing experience with recovery and livelihood rebuilding projects in Nepal, WFP is well positioned to provide critical support to the affected people in the medium to longer term, particularly through the Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA). As a core team member, WFP will play a strong role in several sectors of the PDNA including community infrastructure reconstruction and rehabilitation, agriculture, social protection, disaster risk reduction, health, education and nutrition. WFP’s emergency preparedness activities with the Government meant that food stocks were pre-positioned and logistics capacity was strengthened prior to the disaster. Thanks to the generosity of donors, just a month and a half since the earthquakes hit Nepal, WFP has provided assistance to more than two million people in extremely challenging circumstances, carried out an emergency needs assessment with the Government, initiated a cash transfer programme, supported the humanitarian community through its expertise in humanitarian logistics and emergency telecommunications, and is currently building temporary health clinics on behalf of the World Health Organisation (WHO).
