Nepal - The Slovak Republic today handed over EUR 71,200 worth of humanitarian aid to IOM for earthquake victims in Nepal.
The aid, consisting of tents, basic emergency utensils, power generators and medical supplies, will be distributed in the coming weeks to homeless families in badly affected rural areas by IOM Nepal and its implementing partners.
Situational overview: The number of displaced has stabilized with the reduction in the intensity of the fighting. Concerns have increased over mines and unexploded ordnance as people come out of basement and shelters. Economic difficulties continue to impact the population affected and host communities, with considerable price rises in recent weeks, especially in non-government controlled areas where there are shortages.
