A call to prioritize marginalized and excluded people in Nepal
After the earthquake in Nepal: Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) calls on the international community to work with local civil society to reach and deliver aid to marginalised and excluded communities in remote areas.
“Even after a week, immediate relief has not reached remote areas” reports Daya Sagar Shrestha today, the Director of the NGO Federation of Nepal. “People in 10 districts are facing serious humanitarian challenges. The number of deaths has crossed over 5000 and hundreds of thousands of people have been wounded.”
The Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) expresses wholehearted solidarity with the people of Nepal and hopes that the nation gains the strength to overcome this disaster. GCAP recognises the efforts of the Government of Nepal but the extent of the humanitarian crisis and limited resources there needs timely and quality support from international organizations.
