Progress Report CnF Nov 2020

The Coronavirus confirmed cases are increasing faster in Nepal.  The treatment cost in a private hospital is beyond affordable so many with mild symptoms or even some with severe symptoms do not get tested and go to the hospital. The government hospitals are running at full capacity and yet don’t have any bed. It is also almost impossible for general people to get a bed in a government hospital.

Even though there is no lockdown in Nepal businesses are running at limited capacity with reduced staffing level. The government spending in the public sector is also at hold. So finding a job nowadays in Nepal is extremely difficult. The poorest people whose family rely on income from daily labouring in factory or fields are suffering the most.

Nepal Village Foundation has helped to one-hundred and ninety families who are struggling to feed themselves in the villages of Mahadewa Municipality, Saptari, Nepal. We have provided 25kg of rice, 2kg of Lentils, 1ltr of cooking oil, a packet of salt, soap bar and 500-rupees cash for fresh vegetables per family.  This will feed the families for a month. Luckily, December is the rice harvesting time and most of the families in the villages grow rice so, now the rice will feed them for a few months.

On the other side, the families whose houses were damaged by the seasonal monsoon are still in the struggle. Seventeen families need help in the villages where we work. The main damages are the walls of the houses, mudslides and some houses are completely wrecked. These seventeen families are the poorest ones and its very unlikely that they can afford a repair anytime sooner. The southern parts of Nepal where we work is in the fourth week of winter. The families sleep with their children in the house which has no walls. First Corona then monsoon and now winter, it can be imagined how terrible is the life of the poorest.

We wrote an email to GlobalGiving for some funds from the South-Asian flood relief and recovery project but we haven’t heard back anything yet.  We understand that everyone globally is impacted by the Coronavirus so it might take some time to reach help. In the meantime, if anyone whose income is not impacted and wish to help the families then please donate to the project today or contact us.
