As Covid-19 cases are dramatically increasing in India, doctors in Nepal are concerned that the country will face a similar devastating wave as the border districts are already reporting an alarming spike in cases as well as shortage of hospital beds and oxygen. They fear that the variant affecting India is currently spreading in Nepal which would explain the recent surge of cases also among younger population.
The British actress of Nepalese heritage Amrita Acharia, known for her roles as Dr Ruby Walker in The Good Karma Hospital or as Irri in Game of Thrones, is deeply concerned about the implications that this second wave will have on the country of her childhood. We are very grateful for her support, as she has recorded a video to promote our emergency appeal!
This is an URGENT REQUEST – we need your help. We need to raise £8,000 within a week which will be doubled if we hit the target in time. All the money raised will go towards the covid relief initiatives. With this amount we can provide food relief to more than 1200 families in Southern Nepal, who do not receive any support from the government. We only help in areas where there is no other help available.
