Support to very poor families in the Terai lowlands

We still need your help.
Thank you to everyone who has donated and a huge thanks to Stories of Nepal and Jay Poudyal for all their hard work to organise and distribute relief to over 500 families in the southern Terai lowland districts of Saptari, Parsa, Sarlahi, and Siraha to very poor and disadvantaged people.
Many of these people have no land and assets so must earn day wages to have food to eat each day. With no work, there is no food. The food supplied lasts from 1-2 months depending on the size of the family. They also provided hygiene kits to the families to try to reduce the chances of them contracting Covid.
Your donation can help us help more families.

As Jay described:

“Food Parcels Distributed in Bindabasini Rural Municipality, Parsa – 31/05/2021

“In collaboration with Sanskriti we have supported 200 families in Amarpatti, Jhauwa, Gardaul & Itiyahi village with food parcels containing 3-weeks of supplies.

“Yesterday the plan was to distribute only 50 packages but when our community partners reached the villages and accessed the situation they brought  a further 30 packages for distribution.

“The families supported are mostly Dalit & Muslim  Most of the them who work Birgunj have had  no work for a month due to lockdown restrictions. They don’t have their own fields for agriculture & are entirely dependent on their small jobs in Birgunj. Most of the families supported had had no rations at all and were surviving on handfuls of snack mix. There were children who haven’t ate well for weeks now and are ill because of it.

“Distribution will now start in a further four villages in the area now the dangerous rains have passed and more updates will follow.”
