Responding to crisis and lockdown

Dear Supporters,

 

This year has been challenging for communities across the globe. On the ground, communities are still grappling with the effects of continued lockdowns and uncertainty.  

 

With little to no warning the impact of Covid-19 on our local communities in Nepal was swift. Lockdown was enacted very early on in decisive measures to ensure the safety and health of communities spanning the mountainous countryside and densely populated cities.  

 

All classes and support were suspended, with many in the communities we support thankful for the quick action, acknowledging their safety was at the forefront of any decisions. 

 

Our local staff have consistently been calling and checking in on our community partners since the pandemic started. Regular phone contact has been welcomed and an engaging moment that many community members look forward to. They continue to express concern for many of their supporters around the world and their hope that one day things will be back to normal. 

 

Multiple emergency food relief campaigns have been carried out to support local communities, and in particular guides and porters who have been unable to work since March. With the tourism sector gutted their return to work date is uncertain.  

 

Our education and women’s empowerment coordinators have continued to distribute educational packs for children who have been out of school for extended periods now. They leave these at local food shops so everyone can grab some fun homework or activities to do while being at home. Every now and then when they happen to meet the children as they are dropping these packs off, they are able to talk through some of the work and get feedback on which additional activities the children would like to practise.  

 

As the year continues in uncertain ways, we feel so fortunate to work with such collaborative partners who are always so responsive to working with us. We are also incredibly grateful to have the support of such eager donor’s, fundraisers and supporters, without whom, we would not be able to complete any of the work mentioned above. It truly is a privilege to be able to work in the way that we do and we thank you for your support in this.  We look forward to welcoming new and existing funders into our journey this year

 

With Gratitude,

 

Nepal Community
