Project Background

 
While monsoon in South East Asia came one month earlier this year, torrential rain for 4 days (16-19th June) on the Himalaya range triggered flash floods and landslides in mountains. It has resulted in massive flooding along rivers causing widespread casualties and damages in northern India (more than 800 dead and 1800 missing people) and in Western Nepal with more than 50 deaths and 19 missing, 1750 people displaced in Far and Mid- western region of Nepal.

 

In Humla and Kalikot districts, 2 locations where Mission East anD its local partner KIRDARC are implementing livelihood projects since 2007, rainfall caused landslides that blocked river stream which lately burst downstream, destructing dwellings, water systems and killing people in massive debris flows. In the sole district of Kalikot, 11 people died and 4 people are still missing. In Humla, 5 people of a same family died in a massive landslide.

 

 

Project Aims: 

Project Aims

Support to repair water facilities for 5 communities of Karnali region, with structural mitigation against flood and landslide and community training on emergency preparedness for better resilience to disasters.
 

Project Action

While Mission East is working to deliver essential WASH kits for families temporary sheltered, the repair and reconstruction of damaged water facilities in affected villages is an important pre-requisite for the return and re-installation of displaced families. This proposal is planning to cover the repair of water facilities in affected villages including material for repair as well as structural mitigation to protect repaired water system from further disaster.

Emergency humanitarian response for flood victims in Kalikot and Humla, Nepal

Project Background: 

Project Background

Exceptionally heavy monsoon rainfall from 16 to 18 June caused major floods in Northern India and Western Nepal. The floods and landslides caused widespread damage leading to displacement of people, loss of life and destruction of homes and livelihoods. In Karnali the damage is very localised and therefore does not attract national or international attention.
 
ME in Nepal fears that the situation is worse than reported to date because police and army had not been able to reach many area and we still lack of  confirmed information from a large part of the districts where we work (Humal and Kalikot).
 
 
Food Aid, it is very relevant to the Karnali situation where Food Security is a structural issue, and when such disasters occur, this is the very first need faced by the displaced population. Shelter assistance to people whose homes have been destroyed is important because of its wider role in the recovery of communities affected by disaster particularly regarding the interrelationship between shelter and livelihoods.
Project Aims: 

 

Project Aims
