In the midst of the pandemic families of the daily wage workers have lost their livelihood. The ongoing lockdown has left them even more vulnerable in the face of this crisis. The lack of support from the local authorities is an issue, affecting the safety and health of both children and parents.
On 24th, June the joint support of GFF HELPS NEPAL and CHILD DEVELOPMENT SOCIETY (CDS) Nepal, reached out to over 30 families of daily wage earners, at CDS office Kapan.
Keeping in mind nutrition and health deemed necessary to combat the third wave said to largely affect children. Hand tailored masks by the GFF women tailor group were handed out along with the food items at the time of distribution. Relief items were: Rice, sattu (gram flour), and for sanitation – soap and masks.
Over 260, hand-tailored masks prepared by the GFF women tailor group were also provided to the Bal Kumari school. The Child Development Society Education Officer Mr. Govinda BK hands over the masks to the school authorities to be distributed to the children.
Promoting the health and safety of children at the time of the crisis. It is infact the top priority of GFF Helps Nepal and Child Development Society.
