UNICEF WASH Response: Fund Utilization Summary

Apr 26, 2016

Following the Nepal Earthquakes, UNICEF’s response in WASH was targeting 840,000 people (both at camps and in communities) including children and women, in the 14 most severely affected districts with critical WASH interventions and information to prevent child illness, especially diarrhoea. This includes supplying people with safe water of appropriate quality for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene, providing access to adequate sanitation and hand washing facilities, as well as providing hygiene kits and hygiene education through interpersonal communication. UNICEF is working closely with the Government through the Department of Water Supply and Sewage and with over 15 implementing partners to support WASH needs of the affected population while also strengthening coordinated response and recovery works through WASH Cluster coordination at a national and subnational level.
