Shelter Provision for the Most Vulnerable Households
Abstract:
Disasters are painful to all but, when it comes to deprivations, the poor suffer the most and among them the most vulnerable faces (i.e women-headed households, single women, people with disabilities, elderly and children, marginalized ethnic groups and Dalits) the most severe hardships. After the 25 April 2015 earthquake in Nepal, the Government of Japan provided immediate financial assistance through UN-Habitat. For more than 2,200 very vulnerable households sleeping under open sky and facing a monsoon and a chilling winter thereafter, this assistance brought significant relief. This publication brings witness to the results and the beneficiaries, who brought in their own determination, support and frequent expressions of gratefulness for the progress made in their recovery, with the support from the people of Japan. #UNHABITAT #EARTHQUAKE2015 #DISASTER
