Helena Christensen meets Nepali women fearful of future

Supermodel Helena Christensen has visited southern Nepal to see the problems caused by unusual weather in her role as Oxfam's climate change ambassador.

The model, also a keen photographer, said women in the Nawalparasi District had told her how scared they were about their future.

Environmental groups say a change in the patterns of rainfall has lead to floods alternating with drought, and extreme cold destroying crops in the area.
