KATHMANDU: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has urged the government and concerned authorities to make the distribution of relief packages effective and efficient.

In a press statement issued by Commission’s Spokesperson Dr Tikaram Pokharel here today, the NHRC drew the attention towards carrying out post-quake relief distribution operation further effective by providing food and shelter to those hit hard by the recent earthquake.

It may be noted that an earthquake measuring 6.4 on the Richter Scale jolted Jajarkot district on November 3 leaving scores of casualties and fatalities and incurring a huge loss of properties in the district itself as well as its neighbouring districts such as Rukum (Paschim), Salyan, Dailekh and Jumla among others.

The Commission, in the press statement, said that there should be an arrangement for safe shelter, warm food, water and toilets for those rendered homeless due to the quake.

“The Commission urged for the effective coordination among the three-tier government for prompt and effective relief distribution to the quake affected ones as well as to protect them from the potential risk of communicable diseases ad epidemics,” read the statement.

According to the Commission, the Commission, during the on-site visit of the quake hit places, had found out that there was lack of smooth coordination among the federal, provincial and local level government as well as the District Disaster Management Committees.

The Commission has appreciated the active efforts of the all three governments, political parties, human rights defenders and civil societies in rescue and relief operation.

It commended the free and effective treatment of the injured ones.

The Commission also found out the quake affected women and children were still living in state of fear and the menstruating girls and women were facing grave inconvenience for maintaining menstrual hygiene due to the lack of proper toilets.
