Nepal’s second deadly wave of COVID-19 and subsequent lockdown have upended the lives of people throughout the small Himalayan country. It has hit the poor, vulnerable and marginalized groups, especially those dependent on daily labor, particularly hard. The situation is especially acute in rural villages, where many people with symptoms are self-isolating but not getting tested and unable to access medical care.
In order to create awareness against the pervasive spread of Covid-19 infection, Believers Eastern Church Diocese of Birtamod distributed Covid-19 protection kits in a village in Okhaldhunga District on 22 July 2021.
More than 70 people who were suffering from Covid-19 symptoms were given facemasks, sanitizers and dettol soaps. The distribution was also done in a bid to rein in the increasing number of coronavirus cases in the village.
The villagers were extremely happy to receive these items. They thanked the church for the concern shown towards them.
One of the villagers by name Raj Kumar said, “I am extremely thankful to the church for the love and care shown towards us. The things which we received may seem small but the love shown towards us is great.”
