Story

the Order of Malta's international relief arm, Malteser International has sent out an assessment team. An extract of their first report reads:

.... “The population are subject to some very poor conditions at the moment. Essential resources such as food, water and electricity are all scarce. Tents and emergency shelters are urgently needed because of the frequent rain. On top of that, medical supplies are running low.” 

The task of aid workers on the ground is difficult. Many roads are impassable. Remote areas are only reachable by helicopter. The rain makes flying conditions difficult, and the task of getting aid where it is needed much harder. Up to now, damage to the airport in Kathmandu has limited the amount of supplies that can be delivered by air.

Malteser International has been working in Nepal since September 2012 on projects to reduce the risk of damage from catastrophic flooding, as well as improve the provision of basic water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in the country
