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.

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.
