In the last 6 years The NestlingTrust (TNT) with partner NGO Sitara, working with the Nepal Ministry of Health has established five Health Posts in the mountainous region of Dolakha Nepal, where previously no health facility existed. Each health post serves a population of approximately 6000. Now it is vital to ensure these health post have the necessary medical supplies and equipment to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19.
TNT has already provided infrared thermometers and protective equipment so nurses are able to check returning migrant workers and villagers for signs and symptoms of the deadly virus. Much more is needed to equip isolation areas, and supply food to those who have lost jobs and now face hunger.
