Pandemic Special Action COVID19
Emergency food aid
CHF 25 to feed a family for 1 month
Because of the dramatic situation that the Nepalese people have been living in total confinement due to the COVID19 pandemic since March 24, the Namaste Gumda committee has decided to provide assistance to 2 villages on the outskirts of Kathmandu.
Goldhunga & Nagarjun
After several weeks of various restrictions, including the closure of Mt-Everset and the ban on foreigners coming to Nepal for trekking, on March 24, 2020 the Nepalese government declared the "lockdown", or the total confinement of the population. Since that day, most Nepalese have no source of income. The luckiest are living on their savings, but many of them are totally destitute.
Nepal's social conditions being far from those of Western countries, the people are currently experiencing a real tragedy, the state is doing what it can, mainly in the city of Kathmandu but outside the capital, families can only count on the help of NGOs to obtain the minimum subsistence level.
For this action, we are collaborating with the NGO "White Grain Foundation", which has been active in Nepal for several years in helping orphans and destitute children. Stéphanie, member of the Namaste Gumda committee (currently in Nepal) and the local representative of the Whitegrain Foundation will organize the purchase and distribution of food for the inhabitants, so that 75 families will be able to benefit from our help.
The aim is to provide each family with a basic food kit including rice, lentils, oil, salt and soya. A kit costs CHF 23 and is enough to feed a family of 5 to 6 people for 1 month. A further CHF 2.00 is added for transport and bank charges.
This cooperation will undoubtedly contribute to helping a population that is in a tragic situation.
