It was another challenging year for Nepal and children and families we serve.
Just months after two major earthquakes devastated the country, political unrest and a prolonged blockade at the Indian border brought Nepal’s recovery efforts to a near standstill.
Petrol, cooking fuel, food, medicine and building materials were in short supply and prices more than doubled, causing even more suffering.
The crisis slowed us down, but it couldn’t stop NYF’s dedicated staff from doing everything they could to care for some of Nepal’s most impoverished children.
They rode bicycles when there was no petrol. When the cooking fuel ran out, they built outdoor fires to keep the community kitchens operating. They worked 16-hour days to help people who had lost everything. And we continued our life-saving work in our Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes.
We are so proud of what our team accomplished in face of these hardships.We could not have done it without your friendship and support.
