Thank you! In just one week our Flood Relief Campaign raised over US$32,000.
With your support, we are helping families who have just lost everything.
On August 24-25, just one week after the flood hit, NYF staff and volunteers began distributing survival kits packed with essential items: tent, sleeping mat and mattress, blankets, pots and pans, utensils and more. This initial distribution aided 216 families in the Bardiya district in west Nepal.
NYF is the first humanitarian organization to reach out to these villages and distribute a complete set of relief materials. The NYF team was led by Man Bahadur Chhetri, Regional Manager of our Empowering Freed Kamlaris program, seen on the left in the photo above.
The distribution was organized in coordination with the local government, which provided security to ensure the process was safe and fair.
Next, the NYF team will distribute survival kits in the Banke district. We will post further updates as news arrives.
Flood Relief Campaign was a success!
Particularly hard hit were the districts of Banke, Bardiya and Dang in western Nepal, the area that is home to the thousands of former Kamlari girls that NYF serves.
We launched our Flood Relief Campaign immediately — and in just one week our friends and supporters raised over US$32,000 for the distribution of relief supplies to families in the affected areas.
We purchased food, tents, cookware, clothing and medicines as a priority, and now we are distributing survival kits to the hundreds of NYF participants who have lost their homes.
Thank you for caring about children and families in Nepal!
