Nepal is currently in lockdown as the country fights to prevent an outbreak and spread of the deadly Coronavirus COVID-19.
The lockdown, while 100% necessary, is having an effect on people's ability to earn money and source food.
Coronavirus cases are on the rise and could increase exponentially over the next few weeks.
There are therefore twin dangers for the Nepali people, the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread famine.
The Glacier Trust has been working in Nepal since 2008. We partner with local NGOs, EcoHimal and HICODEF, to enable climate change adaptation in four communities.
Both EcoHimal and HICODEF are working tirelessly (from home) to organise a response to prevent a Coronavirus outbreak.
100% of your donation will be sent to Nepal to purchase the following items:
Seeds for kitchen gardens
Personal Protection Equipment
Thermal guns for taking temperature
We are being guided by our NGO partners in Nepal on what each community most needs. They are in contact on a daily basis with local government leaders, families and field staff to ensure any funds raised will be spent most effectively.
The Glacier Trust has already sent £2,000 to our partners in Nepal. We hope to double that through this Crowdfunder.
Thank you for your support.
Crowdfunder is making it 100% free for community and charity crowdfunding projects during the coronavirus crisis. The Covid-19 epidemic could affect millions of people in the next few weeks.
These are unprecedented times but together, we are stronger, and the response is coming from communities across the country.
Volunteer groups are springing up to tackle the logistical problems faced in our communities – but they need urgent support. That's where we come in.
