INF Nepal, in collaboration with the team of four other organisations – Asal Chhimeki Nepal [ACN], Nepal Christian Society, Pokhareli Christian Community delivered immediate food relief items to the 66 households of the Manang district who were severely affected by a recent flood. Because of the road situation and the urgency of the locals, the team used the helicopter to transport food items.
These households have been living in tents and using a mass kitchen for the past two weeks. They ran out of food stock and were in urgent need to replenish their food stock. The team has a target to reach out to as many as 200 households of the flood victims of Manang. Sixty-six have been supported, but many families might be needing help as they are out of contact now due to the disruption in electricity, telephone lines and road access. We are in regular contact with the district disaster management team and the local government bodies.
Similarly, in partnership with local NGOs, INF Nepal also supported the flood victims of the Chitwan district. More updates will come soon.
As a part of the COVID response, INF Nepal provided health items to the local isolation centre for COVID patient management of Rupa Rural Municipality of Kaski district and COVID dedicated hospital in Surkhet. In Gorkha, INF Nepal supported 50 households from disability or COVID infected patients or marginalised people with immediate food relief materials.
