KATHMANDU: Qatar Charity has launched an urgent campaign to help those affected by floods in Nepal.

The campaign aims to assist people affected by floods, including food, shelter, health, and education.

It also aims to provide safe drinking water to the affected people, in addition to providing shelter which includes tents, a living room bag, and floor mats and supporting the educational process.

The convoy benefited 20,000 people and the aid amounted to QR1mn. In Nepal, 384,950 people have been affected by floods and mudslides caused by heavy monsoon rains, according to a July report of Nepal Red Crescent. The number of victims reached 78, the number of missing persons reached 22, and the total number of houses that were totally or partially affected was 18,694.
