Our Partner staff in Nepal have been working consistently to ensure families and children within the communities we work in remain safe and supported. This includes the continued provision of food relief, protective equipment, hygiene supplies, as well as mental and emotional support. This has been particularly crucial in remote villages where access to healthcare and basic necessities remain a challenge.
In the last quarter, with your support we have been able to provide the following:
- Food relief for post-natal mothers
219 post-natal mothers received nutritious food to last them several weeks, and were also made aware of ways to prevent COVID-19 and the precautions they should be taking at home
- Food relief for low-income child activists’ families
268 child activists in our program received food relief support. Families having food availability for less than 3 months were selected the team to be supported.
- Protective material for those in home isolation
23 COVID-positive patients who were economically poor and home isolation were provided with nutritious food support such as eggs, lentils, beans, rice, oil, salt as well as hygiene and protective materials. Another 36 people living in isolation were provided with masks, sanitizers, gloves and soap.
- COVID-19 protective materials and essential medical instruments to isolation centres
Six municipality-run isolation centres in three districts received necessary COVID-19 protective materials (masks, sanitizers, gloves, face shield, disinfectants, hand wash soaps and Personal Protective Equipment) and measuring instruments (thermometers and pulse oximeters) that helped in the management of cases of COVID-19 at isolation centers.
- Protection material to health centres
14 health centres were provided with necessary protection materials and medical instruments such as masks, gloves, face shields, disinfectant, liquid hand wash, sanitizer, thermometers and pulse oximeters.
