Lincs2Nepal reaction to severe flooding in Kanchanpur and Bardiya districts.
Due to the way Lincs2Nepal reacts immediately to the needs of the people of Nepal and the media attention that has brought, our school has become the go-to place for the most desperate people in times of need. Two districts of south west Nepal have been severely hit by flooding. Over 500 families in Kanchanpur, which is around 160km away, and Bardiya, 85 km away, have lost their homes due to flooding and landslides. These are lower caste communities and during such disasters, girls and women are at a high risk of sexual harassment, abuse, exploitation and trafficking. These people have lost their homes, stored food, crops and clothes and we are providing food, clothes, shelter and health facilities, while getting as many of the girls and women into safe accommodation as possible. Our first consignment of food and clothes will be delivered to the people tomorrow. If you would like to help these communities, you can donate to our appeal at: Flood Relief – JustGiving
