Pandemic Response

Elevate Nepal formed an Emergency Pandemic Response plan to help assist Nepal as it struggled with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The programs listed before are ongoing.

NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

A strict lockdown in Nepal lasting almost three 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. So far food has been distributed to over 2,000 people that will help sustain them for up to 30 days. 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. Wanchuk also facilitated the distribution of 1,000 masks to local villagers and 160 monks at Namobuddha Monastery while teaching the importance of this simple, yet impactful, life saving action.

TOTAL SPENT AS OF 6/20: $12,300
