Continuous rainfall since 11 July 2019 has resulted in heavy flooding and landslides in different parts of Nepal. The Situation Report from Nepal’s Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) has reported more than 100 deaths and 41 injured. A total of 29 people are missing, presumed to have been washed away by swollen rivers or buried under landslides.
AEIN's local partner, the Women’s Rehabilitation Center (WOREC), has been providing emergency relief from day one in two of the worst hit provinces and is supporting victims of this natural disaster in coordination with local authorities, by rescuing people, providing relief materials and safe shelters. The situation on the ground is still critical and, as always, the most affected people are the most vulnerable. WOREC is also significantly involved in the sharing of regular updates on the extent of the floods and its damages with government bodies and other protection agencies, an essential aid to the rescue process.
“Along with our partner WOREC, we aim to continue rescue and rehabilitation efforts and support the highest-risk victims”, said Françoise Binsfeld, Executive Director at AEIN. Even a small amount from you can go a long way for the victim.
