Waste management

Waste management has been a problem in many camp sites. At Camp Hope, this pit dug just outside the camp’s bamboo wall serves as the central waste dumping site from which it gets collected by city’s waste collection service.

Provision of safe drinking water and management of waste are major concerns particularly in relief camps to prevent the risk of several diseases including: Hepatitis A, Cholera, Typhoid and Dysentery.

The USAID-funded integrated nutrition program Suaahara is leading emergency nutrition and WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) efforts in earthquake-affected areas, particularly in Gorkha, Sindhupalchowk, Rasuwa, Nuwakot, Lamjung and Dolakha. The project is helping to build temporary latrines in relief camps to reduce the risk of diseases while promoting healthy behaviors such as hand washing with soap, boiling water or using chlorine solution to treat drinking water.
