CARE distributes shelter kits in Nepal

INTERNATIONAL aid organisation CARE will today receive the second shipment of Australian Government relief supplies in Kathmandu, for survivors of Nepal’s deadly earthquakes.

The 1,000 shelter kits for families will be distributed in Gorkha and Sindhupalchowk Districts in the next week.

Sindhupalchowk District was the hardest hit region in the second major earthquake.

These are essential supplies. CARE Australia warned last week that with Nepal’s monsoon season less than a month away, it is a race against time to get emergency shelter to survivors of the devastating earthquakes that have left over 500,000 homes destroyed or damaged.

CARE has already reached thousands of people with emergency supplies and over the next few weeks, plans to reach a further 30,000 people with emergency shelter kits that include weather-resistant tarpaulins, rope and a toolkit that will help protect them from the rains, as they begin to rebuild their homes.

CARE Australia is still calling for Australians to support its appeal, which is helping to fund the response and relief effort in Nepal: www.care.org.au/nepal

$95 can provide emergency food for 15 days.
