Coronavirus in Nepal

Coronavirus is hitting Nepal hard

Although the rise in numbers of recorded cases is now slowing, the wider impacts of the pandemic are starting to unfold.

A perfect storm is brewing. The real danger in Nepal may not be coronavirus itself, but the economic time-bomb that will force many more people into poverty.

Thank you to those who have already given to our Coronavirus Appeal.

Our partners are already responding to the most urgent needs – click here to read what they are doing. Some of this involves helping at quarantine centres, and you can also read Brij Mohan’s experience of staying in one of these centres.

We are getting regular updates about the situation in Nepal, including how our partners are identifying and responding to specific needs across the country – read the latest update here.
