The strong wind storm which hit Bara and Parsa districts in province number 2 on 31 March has left 28 people dead (including 6 children) and more than 2 404 families (approximately 14 424 people) affected.
A total of 2 404 buildings, including three schools are damaged and shelter is urgently needed as temperatures rise in the Terai, and vulnerable populations struggle difficulties in coping with the heat.
Food items (including baby food), are also needed. Local charity organisations and clubs are providing the affected communities with hot meals. Torches, hygiene kits, baby kits, toilet and sanitation facilities, kitchen utensils, and clothes are also needed.
The wind storm has damaged a huge number of electricity poles in Bara and Parsa and rural roads are blocked. Electricity is down, and schools are closed. Agriculture has also been affected with families loosing stored grains and standing crops ready for harvest.
The Nepal Red Cross, UN agencies, and international organisations are supporting local and provincial governments, alongside civil society.
