MAKE A DIFFERENCE NEPAL is very pleased to share that we have successfully completed the COVID-19 Crisis Support Project. We have distributed relief packages (essential food supplies) to 80 families residing in the Manohora slum area. At initial phase, MDN coordinated with ward office to analyze the situation and identify the most vulnerable and affected families due to COVID-19 nationwide lockdown.
MDN identified a total of 80 families who were in need of help. MDN held an open discussion where the participants expressed their needs at these uncertain times due to COVID-19 pandemic. The identified families suggested that relief materials (daily essentials) would serve them best as it will bring meals on their plates since they are unable to earn at this time of crisis.
MDN agreed to their request and purchased above mentioned food supplies for 80 families. On 14 May 2020, MDN distributed the relief packages to the families. MDN took necessary precaution measures to minimize the spread of the novel coronavirus. Maintaining the social distancing practice and in smaller groups, MDN distributed the relief materials to all 80 families as promised. A few volunteers from the Ward office and neighborhood gathered for extra support along with the team of MDN. With great unity, the project was a huge success in the community of Manohara slum area Kathmandu, Nepal.
MDN would like to take a moment to thank all the generous individuals and groups involved in this great cause.
