Nepal police had given security from Dolalghat to the Headquarter Chautara. From there, we had moved with local NGOs and women network leaders and we have distributed well planned packages to all the affected household according to the cluster. It went very well.

We would like to thank all the local networks, NGOs, CBOs leaders and Nepal Police. We have tried to make this package gender-friendly, especially access to post-natal women, old women and the lactating mothers. We all Jagaran team including myself went there to distribute the package.
