Coping with the aftermath of the first few waves

Coronavirus is not leaving Nepal and people are still suffering as a result of previous lockdowns. Now, the Dashain festival has started and people started gathering in huge groups with no social distancing observed. There are worries that another massive increase in cases will follow shortly after the holidays. As almost no tests are being done, it is very difficult to know the real number of infections or even COVID related deaths.

We have been supporting those that have been affected by the virus or by the subsequent lockdowns, and are also on a standby to provide any emergency support when/if needed. We have also been supporting the children that were not able to attend school due to COVID and closed schools. The exams are taking place so we have been providing tutors where we can and enabling the children to pass their exams and ensuring they do not lose another year. 

Luckily, we have been able to get all our staff members vaccinated but we still have to be very careful. All staff who come back from their annual leave, or our new volunteers, are required to self isolate before they start work to ensure the safety of everyone else around them. 

We are also trying to plan a number of sustainable small scale projects aimed at assisting those communities (particularly those from the lowest castes) that have been mostly affected by the current situation. We are hoping to be able to update you with some of those ideas within our next report!

And a massive, massive thank you again for all the support - it means so much!
