report Belgian Red Cross

La Croix-Rouge de Belgique a récolté plus d’1 million d’euros - l’argent servira notamment à rétablir l’eau potable dans dix villages parmi les plus affectés !

Un mois après le terrible tremblement de terre qui a frappé le Népal et détruit totalement ou partiellement 850.000 habitations, la Croix-Rouge est l’acteur humanitaire le plus important en ce qui concerne la distribution d’abris d’urgence. La Croix-Rouge était présente avant, pendant la catastrophe et l’est évidemment plus que jamais après le séisme.

It’s been one month since the ground began violently tremoring across Nepal – today, the streets of Kathmandu are still sporadically jerking.

Kathmandu, Nepal | AFP | Sunday 5/24/2015 - 13:19 GMT

Thousands of panic-stricken villagers fled their homes fearing flash floods after an overnight landslide blocked a river in quake-hit Nepal's mountainous northwest, officials said Sunday.

The landslide at around midnight sent mud and rocks tumbling into the Kali Gandaki river in Myagdi district, causing water levels to rise by 150 metres (490 feet), said local official Yam Bahadur Chokhal.

Map shows the number of activities and an agency list within a Village Development Committee (VDC) area. Each agency may perform mulitiple activities within a VDC and so there will be fewer agencies than activity numbers.

Important Note: The OCHA 4W spreadsheet does not always indicate which VDC the activity is within. These activities are included in the district total but not shown on the map.
