Landslides following in the wake of two large earthquakes in Nepal are hampering the delivery of relief supplies to affected people according to the UN humanitarian office, OCHA.

The agency says that a lack of funding, only approximately 20 per cent of the US$423 million appeal has been received, is also holding back aid efforts.

Hundreds of thousands of people remain homeless nearly three weeks after the first tremor hit in April.

Jamie McGoldrick, the Humanitarian Coordinator in Nepal has updated Ana Carmo on the current situation in the South Asian country.
