28 Feb Rebuilding livelihoods after Koshi floods
The impact of the 2022 monsoon season in Nepal included thousands of people who had their homes and crops damaged when the Koshi river burst its banks, affecting districts including Udayapur and Sunsari in eastern Nepal.
Thanks to supporters who donated to our Disaster Relief Fund, Asal Chhimekee Nepal (ACN) and Group of Helping Hands (SAHAS) Nepal helped people living in various communities to rebuild their livelihoods and become more resilient to any future flooding.
ACN’s support included immediate relief, distributing 522 food and hygiene packages to families affected by the floods and 169 packages for new mothers. Just before Christmas, ACN returned to help 400 households with seeds (maize and vegetables) and fertiliser to help restore and improve their food security.
A further 50 households benefitted from SAHAS’ work helping people recover from the Koshi flood thanks to our supporters. Their support helped people survive through the winter months and also included creating more resilient farming systems with improved agriculture productivity, WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) promotion, capacity building in disaster risk reduction, and psychological first aid training.
Thank you to everybody who made this possible.
