30 August, 2017
Severe flooding in Nepal, India and Bangladesh has killed more than 1200 people and left millions of people displaced.
As a global network, ADRA is responding to assist thousands of people in Nepal affected by this crisis.
In Rautahat, ADRA has already distributed shelter items, food packages and hygiene kits to 450 households. In Sarlahi, Banke and Bardiya, 500 households were provided with shelter and hygiene kits.
The shelter kits consist of 1 tarpaulin (3.6 x 2.4m), 10 metres of nylon rope and a large plastic sheet per family.
The food packs contain 30kg of rice, 5kg of lentils, 4kg of sugar, 1kg salt and two litres of cooking oil.
These food packs are intended to sustain one family for two weeks.
In the coming days, ADRA is assisting more than 3000 people from another 600 households in central and eastern Nepal.
As well as shelter and food kits, each of these families will also receive a bedding set including two mattresses, sheets, blankets and mosquito nets, and a kitchen set comprising a bucket, cooking pot, plate, glass, cup and serving spoon.
