COVID-19 Lockdowns Have Left Families with No Income, Difficulty Getting Food and Basic Supplies. Help Raise $19,250 by July 3rd!
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Nepal’s government has shut down almost every source of income in the country:
- Flights and most travel
- Imports – including food from other countries
- Businesses and most commerce
Plus, Nepalis working in other countries have lost their jobs too. This means that the 30% of Nepal’s economy that depends on money sent from overseas workers has dried up.
This has left many families in a desperate situation. They have little or no income. Food is scarce (meat vanished from markets for nearly 3 weeks back in April) and more expensive.
Suicides are sadly on the rise. Fear is spreading faster than the virus.
Unlike in the US – there is no Nepali government stimulus package. There is no unemployment insurance.
There’s nothing – except you – standing between families, kids, and extreme hunger, starvation, and the diseases that come with those.
