Jajarkot Earthquake: Situation Analysis Report, 05


This situation Analysis Report covers the impact of the earthquake in the earthquake affected area. The Karnali Province Government has allocated Rs 24.5 million to support the affected communities. Complementing this, the Chinese government has contributed relief materials valued at NPR 28 crores, including essential items like tents and blankets. As per ministerial cabinet meeting, to address long-term stability, there are plans to construct earthquake-resistant homes within the next year.
To strengthen these efforts, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has provided Rs 100 million to the Nepal Red Cross Society for rescue and relief operations. The Ministry of Health is actively working to prevent health crises, sending teams to monitor and mitigate the risks of disease outbreaks, with a particular focus on malnutrition and mental health. Recovery work includes clearing debris, a task undertaken by security forces and rescue teams, which is critical for retrieving valuables for the displaced families. To ensure the health and safety of the population, the WASH Cluster in Karnali is prioritizing access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, maintaining transparency by cataloging relief materials via Google Sheets. The emotional and psychological well-being of children is being addressed through the 'Child Club' initiative in Local Government like Bheri Municipality, and similar psychosocial support is being extended to women and other affected individuals by volunteers. Markets in Aathbiskot and Nalghad municipalities report stability in goods and pricing, showing a resilient economic recovery. In the midst of these restorative actions, everyday life is thoughtfully resuming, with farmers and tailors returning to their work, symbolizing the community's determination. In the midst of all this, Samunnubhuti Nepal is offering free food service in Khalanga Jajarkot.
Ongoing relief efforts are facing communication challenges in Jajarkot, complicating the coordination of these initiatives.
