The Koshi Flood 2008

The Koshi Flood of 2008 killed many people, swept away homes, schools, cattle and farming land. We were there to support children by establishing Child Care Spaces (Child Care Centers), helping many of them to reunite with their parents and taking the ones who had lost both parents in SOS Families for long term care and support. 

After the flood, we consolidated ‘Housing and Livelihood Programme’ in Sunsari District in partnership with Habitat for Humanity.  This proved to be highly effective to bring back the lives of financially humble families to normalcy and has had a high social and economic impact and has been replicated in other parts of the country.
