PHASE Nepal Team is continuosly providing health service in the remote himalayan villages amid the covid-19 crisis maintaining best possible precautions. Here is the list of the most recent updates from our project areas.
In the last three weeks, our health teams have reached more than 3,700 patients with essential services like primary health care, family planning, ANC check-ups, and orientation on COVID through PHASE supported health posts and desks and a delivery of a child. So far, no cases of the corona are found in PHASE working communities.
PHASE Mobile health teams were able to provide general health check-up and orientation on COVID and nutrition to road-building groups and their families. They have also successfully checked and refilled first aid kits in road construction sites for road workers and machine operators.
On the occasion of World Breastfeeding week, our team involved 275 lactating mothers and female health volunteers from Mugu, Humla, Bajura, Gorkha and Sindhupalchok districts in orientation events on the importance of breastfeeding. Demonstrations of safe breastfeeding in the time of pandemic were shared in the event.
In addition to providing direct health care, PHASE is also working in Mugu, Bajura, Gorkha and Sindhupalchok in nutritious food production via home garden initiative , so that the children have access to nutritions food such as green vegetables and mushrooms.
"I am very grateful for PHASE's support in ensuring these most essential services right in the village, even in the time of this global crisis," shared the Ward Chairperson of the Bama Village Mugu.
With your generous support, we have been able to provide this valuable service even during this difficult time. We wholeheartedly appreciate your support especially when you have problems in your own countries and communities.
