Massive winds accompanied by hailstorms and rain struck harmful to many peoples as high speed wind tore down houses, flipped vehicles and toppled trees and electricity poles. Houses have been reduced to rubble. Trees, utility poles and even underground water pumps have been uprooted. People are facing difficulty finding food, medicine, shelter and drinking water and crops have been damaged, threatening people's livelihood. The storm has damaged hundreds of houses, electric pylons, while uprooted trees have obstructed the roads and highways.

Many People houses are damaged and destroyed so that they are cooking food in public place or in open place due to loses of kitchen room and houses. They couldn't afford to  buy gas cylinder or new technology for cooking food. They are cooking food on the fires pump, homemade stove which produces lot of smokes and very difficult for cooking food. These cooking practices are inefficient, use fuel woods and technologies  that produce high level of air and smoke pollution witha range of health damaging pollutants, including small soot particles that penetrate into the lungs. Because of these traditional practices of cooking(cooking from the use of fuel wood) needs more kg of fuel wood, more time taking for cooking and smoke pollution for cooker and children resulting respiratory diseases. Exposure is particularly high among women and young children, who spend the most time near the domestic health.

MRC Nepal has been organized 2 events training where 18 female and 7 male   in 1st slot and 20 female and 5 male in 2nd slot participated in portable cook stove training. The trainings were facilitated by MRC staff. Awareness raising, capacity building, increase access to concerned offices, coping mechanism and disaster risk reduction measures were the topics dealt in the training. Government provisions for such victims also informed in the training. Safe guard measures in such conditions were also taught in the training. Women and children are more vulnerable so family members and other neighbors should give special attention to save from vulnerability. Facilitator interacted on this issue too. Disaster may happen any time so participants are aware on different type of disaster.

Coordination with service providers also made for the effective implementation of activity.
