Over 800 households provided with relief materials in Saptari

RAJBIRAJ: More than 800 flood-affected households in the hardest-hit Maina Kaderi of Tirahut Rural Municipality-2 of Saptari district have been provided with relief packages by private organisations on Monday.

Digicon Consultant Pvt Ltd distributed the relief materials including beaten rice, biscuits, noodles and water, among others to some 600 households.

Since the roads have been damaged in the flood incident, the relief materials were distributed using bullock carts, shared Managing Director of Digicon Consultant Pvt Ltd, Ram Udar Yadav.

Relief items were also distributed among 40 flood survivors who were temporarily residing in makeshift tents at Hanumannagar Kankalani Municipality-2 in the district. They were displaced after the flood from Mehuli River entered their villages.

Meanwhile, another social organisation — Bhairochana Foundation Kathmandu — also provided flood survivors of Sakarapur village with relief assistance. They have been rendered homeless following the flood incident in their locality for two weeks.

The Foundation distributed 3,000kg rice, 200kg of grams, 200l edible oil, 50kg of salt and 50kg soybean to 982 such households.

The flood survivors here have also been living in the makeshift tents since they were displaced by the flood.
