Summary

KOSHISH provides short-term emergency residential psychosocial support to marginalized women who are locked, caged, chained, homeless, or abandoned in street even during COVID-19 pandemic . On average, at a time 30 women reside in quarantine center &therapeutic safe house of KOSHISH. The staff maintains their hygiene & cleanliness, gives fresh set of clothes every day, and changes bed-sheets from time-to-time. With availability of a washing machine, it would be effective to maintain cleanliness.

Challenge

The women who are brought from the street and abandoned state usually defecate in their clothes and they are not able to maintain the cleanliness. Thus, the staffs have to wash the clothes in ever day basis with their hands. In a day, at least clothes of 30 in-house women need to be washed. With limited numbers of staffs it is difficult to wash the clothes every day by hand. It requires a lot of manpower and is time-consuming.

Solution

Installation of a washing machine with larger capacity can help to save time and effort of the staff. It will contribute in maintaining the cleanliness of women resided in the facilities. The total cost for purchasing washing machine is USD 10,046. Mennonite Central Committee Nepal (MCC-Nepal) has committed USD 2,804 for purchasing washing machine. We have already received USD 818 from kind hearted friends of KOSHISH through GlobalGiving. KOSHISH is exploring for additional funds.

Long-Term Impact

It will help in providing quality and effective services to the vulnerable women.
