2015 has been an incredibly challenging year for Nepal and its people. First the devastating earthquakes last spring and now the four-month blockade at the Indian border that’s threatening lives and causing even more economic damage.
Fuel is scarce; creating days-long lines at gas stations for what little is available. People are cooking outside with wood because there is no cooking fuel. Hospitals are turning away non-critical patients because of a shortage of medicine and supplies. The government continues to negotiate with the groups leading the protests, and we all hope there will be a resolution soon.
Knowing the incredible resilience of the people of Nepal, we are hopeful that 2016 will bring an end to the political discord and the country can move forward with its work of rebuilding.
Our staff is working hard to push forward with our programs and we continue to care for the children under our watch.
Please keep the people of Nepal in your hearts and thoughts this holiday season.
With warmest wishes for the year ahead,
Nepal Youth Foundation
