Private sector expedites relief distribution in Rautahat

Rautahat, August 17

At a time when the government campaign for relief distribution is struggling to pick momentum. The private sector and individuals have come forward and expedited relief distribution for flood victims in Rautahat.

Private firms are distributing relief materials to flood victims in Rautahat district headquarters Gaur, Debahi, Basantapati, Laukaha, Rajpur and Garuda.

Today, Bishwokarma Cement Private Limited reached out to flood victims in a Dalit settlement in Gaur and provided relief. Representatives of the company visited households affected and provided them coupons in the morning for relief materials that they collected in the afternoon from local Mitra Memorial English Boarding School.

Chief executive officer of the company Bishal Karnali described the initiative as an attempt to heal the wounds of flood victims. “We are confirming the number of families who were worst hit by recent floods and who had their houses destroyed by the natural disaster. We will help them as much we can from our side,” he said.

Similarly, in Debahi, representatives of Chaudhary Group and Plan Nepal, and organisations, provided relief to flood victims.

“At a time when flood victims are desperately waiting for government relief, the private sector coming to flood victims’ aid has been great consolation for them,” Binod Patel, a local of Debahi, said.
