Since mid-June, due to continuous heavy rainfall floodwaters has entered the villages and caused devastating consequences. Many families are displaced either temporarily or permanently in Manang district. Despite of road blockage and COVID lockdown, we were able to deliver food packages to flood-affected families who were waiting for the food support in Tal village with the help of Helicopter. From two weeks these families have been sharing a common mass kitchen and have now finished their food stock.
