The U.S. Mission in Nepal, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), will contribute an additional $190,000 to increase protection for vulnerable women and children in three flood-affected districts of Nepal: Banke, Bardia and Surkhet. 

USAID has provided the new funds to Save the Children in Nepal to support the psycho-social needs of vulnerable women and children; identify, reunite or refer unaccompanied minors to appropriate services; support community-based protection activities; and train health and education providers on how to identify and respond to abuse, exploitation, gender-based violence, and psycho-social distress.

According to a press relase issued by U.S Embassy, with this new contribution, the U.S. Government has provided food and non-food assistance worth nearly $1.1 million to flood- and landslide-affected households in Nepal.
