Unavailability of food for quake victims riles NHRC

KATHMANDU: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has drawn the attention of the governments towards the food crisis faced by the survivors of the April-May (2015) earthquake.

In a press statement Monday, the NHRC demanded that the government immediately distribute rice, salt and edible oil provided by the donor agencies for the earthquake survivors. The government has been urged to make necessary arrangements for timely distribution of foodstuffs to the disaster survivors so as not to deprive them of relief assistance and avoid the sending of negative message to the donor community.
