Shelters for flood-affected

Kathmandu, October 6:

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency Nepal (ADRA Nepal), which is currently involved in rehabilitation of the flood-affected kamaiya population in western Nepal, has decided to build 500 shelters for the displaced people on the land given by the government. The effort is being funded by Swiss Solidarity, ADRA International and ADRA New Zealand.

“We started with basic relief efforts, but ended up undertaking the task of building shelters for the displaced freed kamaiyas with the support of the donor agencies,” said Ashok Shrestha, emergency response coordinator, ADRA Nepal.

ADRA Nepal, which is providing relief to the affected people since early August in eastern and far-western regions, is working in coordination with the District Disaster Relief Committee and other agencies with the fund coming from the ADRA network.
