Relief International together with Nepali partners ANSAB (Asia Network for Sustainable Agriculture and Bioresources Nepal) and CHESS (Child Health and Environment Save Society Nepal) distributed shelter materials to 2602 households in three of the districts most affected by Nepal’s May 2015 earthquakes: Sindhupalchowk, Dolakha, and Gorkha.
Humanitarian agencies are calling on the international community to support a lasting solution that could save the lives of millions of civilians in Yemen, as the United Nations prepares to host peace talks on Sunday 14 June in Geneva.
According to 13 international humanitarian organisations, what Yemen urgently needs is a permanent ceasefire, an end to the Saudi-led commercial blockade, an end to arms transfers to those responsible for breaches of International Humanitarian Law, and a sizeable increase in humanitarian and longer term development funding.
Objectives of the mission were as follows:
Conduct Assessment of:
• Extent and nature of damages in earthquake affected areas
• Urgent needs of affected populations
• District government procedures for delivery of relief
• Activities being implemented by local partner CHESS Nepal
