In these exceptional times with the Covid-19 virus spreading so rapidly around the world, it is hard to find such equipment, even in developed countries, so we can understand the difficulties Sitara has faced in gathering these items and also for arranging the transportation despite the 'lockdown' in Nepal. In particular finding infrared thermal gun thermometers, vital in trying to identifying those likely to be suffering from the virus has proved to be almost impossible with stocks in the country having been bought up by a syndicate for sale on the black market. Police arrested the perpetrators and confiscated the thermometers. After days of contacting different suppliers and hours of negotiations Sitara has finally secured ten.The Nestling Trust thanks SItara most sincerely for their commitment and determination.
Thank you also to our loyal supporters - without you this would not be possible.
