The relief materials for the earthquake victims supported by OXFAM are found to be rotten in their godown. The relief was rotten in the godown of OXFAM at Bidur Municipality-4, Battar after it could not be distributed to the victims on time. Chief Arun Paudel said that most of the materials were expired.

At least 114 sacks of cement and hygiene kits were expired according to Poudel. He added the expiry is because the materials could not be distributed because of the local level election and immediate monsoon after that.

OXFAM said that they are distributing new stock to the victims by destroying the old stocks.

OXFAM is operating re-construction of water plant and other relief related project in nine VDCs of the district.
