Food Relief for 30 Women in the My Business My Freedom Program

 

Since the lockdown was implemented in Nepal due to the pandemic, many people have not been able to work. This includes the women beneficiaries of the My Business – My Freedom Program.

Our on-the-ground partner, 3 Angels Nepal, have been reaching out to these women through phone to check up on them and see if anyone is in dire need. True enough, they found 30 of them who were really struggling to feed their children.

The team then gathered supplies to be distributed to the women. The relief package contained a month’s supply of food staples – a sack of rice, 3 kilos of dal, 1 liter of cooking oil, a pack of salt, 2 kilos of soybeans and 2 kilos of lentils. We hope that through this food supply, their families will be able to get by during this time.

Despite the difficulty, seeing the smiles on their faces after receiving the relief packs gives us hope and even more motivation to support each other through this crisis.
