Intense Flooding Across the Country
This past weekend, Nepal, India and Bangladesh experienced heavy rains and intense flooding. According to BBC, at least 67 people lost their lives in Nepal in the torrential downpour that occurred yesterday. The total of deceased across the three countries has amounting to over 130 people.
The flooding and rainfall has created much destruction to road ways, houses and fields across the country. The southern Terai regions are often affected by annual flooding, however this year large destruction has occurred in Kathmandu as well. Thousands of people have been displaced as rivers levels remain high.
We have been able to check in with our projects, all of which are safe and well.
