Emergency Aid

In case of unforeseen natural and humanitarian events (floods, droughts, earthquakes, conflicts), Friends of Humanity is also trying to provide emergency assistance in various forms.

The organization is moving quickly to raise funds intended to finance the distribution of food, access to water, emergency medical care, accommodation in suitable shelters, etc.

In the aftermath of disasters, according to the needs assessment, FOH then establishes a program of action that it may develop over the long term to help the people of affected areas and to participate in restoration of normal living conditions.

2020 Covid-19

Sanothimi, Suryabinayek, Kirtipur and Nalinchowok Bhaktapur, Nepal

 

The situation in Nepal is really critical at this moment, the people don't have work, everything is closed (stores, restaurants schools etc.. as everywhere) being unable to go out and getting hard time to feed their family. Besides thousands of Nepali migrant workers returned back home after losing their jobs following India's lockdown, resulting in a humanitarian crisis.

Most of the Nepalis don't have access to food and water.  Friends of Humanity has decided to support Nepal, by supplying food, as rices, beans, oil, salt, and items of first necessity, including masks, toilet paper, soap and paracetamol, to those in need. During the delivery, our local partner Mukunda Dhungana, also educated the Nepalis on the awareness and prevention of covid-19 and the basic rules to prevent a spread (Social distancing, to use masks, washing hands etc.. )

Since the 25th May 2020 until 22nd June, on a weekly basis, the project has benefited around 270 families with a total impact of about 1027 single mothers, students, old aged, labor, disable living in the poor communities of Sanothimi, Suryabinayek, Kirtipur and Nalinchowok Bhaktapur, Nepal.
