Saving Lives: Responding to the Influx of Malnourished Children With Your Support

Dear Friends,

As you know, catastrophic August floods in southern Nepal killed 100+ people and affected thousands, including some of the children you support through Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes.

Thanks to your support, NYF was able to respond to the influx of malnourished children at our Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes. The NRH in Banke, located in one of the hardest hit areas, doubled its capacity. As families return to their homes and land, NRHs are prepared for a long-term response to serve children who are at high risk of relapsing with so much arable land seriously damaged.

Additionally, after days of uncertainty and deprivation, 500 families across our programs each received several weeks’ worth of supplies, including rice, dal (lentils), oil, salt, and flour, helping to prevent further malnutrition. Families who lost their homes entirely received additional support including a basic cooking set, blankets, and stipends for living expenses.

While the road to recovery is long, these 500 families are taking an important step forward knowing people like you care – and the NRHs are prepared to provide lifesaving treatment for many more over the weeks and months ahead.

Thank you!
