Coronavirus in Nepal

Coronavirus is hitting Nepal hard

Although the number of cases remains relatively low, a significant economic and humanitarian crisis has already started.

The biggest danger for many of the world’s poorest people comes from the economic impact of lockdown, rather than coronavirus itself. Nepal is no exception.

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.

Woman getting food package from ACN in Nepal

Several weeks of lockdown means the poorest people are going hungry

Low-income workers who rely on money from daily wage labour lost their livelihoods overnight, leaving them unable to provide for their families.

£20 could provide a food package which feeds a family for 2-3 weeks.

Please support the people of Nepal through the coronavirus crisis.
