Devastation not only because of the rains

Experts say the chaos in the first week of the monsoon is quite worrisome and with the "above normal" rains predicted this time, the situation could get worse.
The first monsoon has wreaked havoc like never before. In less than a week after the monsoon arrived in Nepal, massive devastation can be seen throughout the country. Large rivers and streams have swollen dangerously, taking entire homes with them. Among districts such as Palpa, Manang, Pyuthan, Syangja, Lamjung and Bajura, Sindhupalchok is one of the hardest hit areas, with hundreds of homes already flooded.

While reports of damage and casualties are trickling in from across the country, many are shocked by the disaster unfolding in the Melamchi region, nearly 60 km from Kathmandu, in Sindhupalchok District.

Our friends were also hit...

The Yadav family is also one of the 40 families whose house was completely buried in the mud. The clothes they are wearing are all they have left. Volunteers and donors from the region help the newly homeless families with basic necessities such as rice and blankets.
