UNICEF warns over new humanitarian crisis in Nepal

  • Unicef has expressed its serious concern over the children of Nepal as the possibility of humanitarian crisis looms over. Issuing a press statement on Saturday, Anthony Lake, executive director of Unicef, expressed worry over the condition of children who were blown by the April 25 massive earthquake earlier and now are reeling under national crisis. "The declining stocks of gas, food and medicines, together with the closure of schools due to political strife in the Terai plains and shortages of fuel throughout the country, are inflicting damage to the lives of the children", Lake said in the statement.
