Annual Report for 2020-21

The damages that the coronavirus has done to the world is beyond imaginable. Even though Nepal did not suffer much in the 1st wave of the virus, the 2nd wave and the 2nd variant of the virus has destroyed many families and brought the country to its knees. Over seventy percent of the population is uncertain about when they will receive the vaccination and hundreds of people are still dying on daily basis. The health service sector in Nepal is lacking tools and medicine to treat the infected ones.

More importantly, the corona pandemic has pushed millions of people back into harder poverty in Nepal and beyond. It’s almost two years’ businesses and the labour market is affected by the pandemic so the poorest ones are the hardest hit. They are struggling to feed themselves and many small scale investments are busted. The government incentives are virtually zero to put them back on their feet.

Nepal Village Foundation is a small grassroots organisation with an annual income under 25k. So it is beyond our capacity to support the millions. However, to service the pandemic and even a little lift-up we have provided emergency groceries suppliers to the poorest families in the villages currently we are working. In the last two years, we have spent £4990 in total to provide the emergency supplies £2500 of which £2500 was from this year. 

In total, 3,375 kg of rice, 405 kg of rice flakes, 135 litres of cooking oil, 270 kg of daal (lentil), 135 kg of salt and 67,500 (£450) rupees cash for fresh vegetables has been provided to 135 families in the villages. There are many more families who need the supplies and, the same families are begging for help again because the supplies would have last only for a couple of months. Nepal Village Foundation has a very limited budget so we are doing only what we can because we have an ongoing girl’s education project to support. 

 Stay Safe and fight the pandemic
