NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
A strict lockdown in Nepal lasting almost seven months has led to hunger becoming a serious issue. Normal supply chains have been disrupted, coupled with devastating losses of income by daily wage workers, leaving millions suffering. Elevate Nepal established a Nutrition Assistance Program to help ease this burden by creating food packages that include rice, lentils, cooking oil, salt, and soap. Our impact has been made possible by utilizing our Nepalese staff, and our partnerships with Steps Foundation and Mountain People Nepal.
PPE AND MASK DISTRIBUTION
Filling the void left by the Nepalese government, Elevate Nepal has partnered with Wangchuk Rapten Lama to distribute desperately needed PPE to medical workers on the front lines. This PPE includes full body suits, bulk hand sanitizer, and masks supplied to 14 health posts in the district of Kavre. Elevate Nepal’s team on the ground has distributed masks to villagers, monks, nuns, students, teachers and front line workers. The team is teaching the importance of this simple, yet impactful, life saving action.
