The wider impacts of the coronavirus pandemic are starting to unfold in Nepal. There are already signs of a severe economic and humanitarian crisis on the horizon.
At the heart of INF’s work is treating people with love and compassion, making sure that they know they matter and receive support that is tailored to their individual needs.
Nepal is one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world. Nepal is at ‘extreme risk’ and is ranked the fourth most-affected country in terms of climate change.
Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Lack of resources, remoteness of villages and discrimination caused by gender, caste, disease or disabilities are some of the reasons that trap people into a life of exclusion and poverty.
At INF we believe that all people deserve a fair chance to thrive, contribute and to play an equal part in their community.
The real danger in Nepal may not be coronavirus itself, but the economic time-bomb that will force many more people into poverty.
According to the World Bank, about 9 million people in Nepal are estimated to live just above the poverty line and risk falling into extreme poverty.
Please give to help bring hope in a time of fear and uncertainty for many of the poorest and most disadvantaged Nepalis.
INF’s work in areas such Bajura and Kalikot reaches some of the poorest people in Nepal. In these remote, mountainous areas families struggle to make ends meet. Community resilience and development programmes help people improve life in their communities and work their way out of poverty.
