Nepal is in crisis!
"The New Humanitarian.org states that, "While the coronavirus surge in India has dominated global attention, a parallel crisis has been unfolding largely in the shadows in neighbouring Nepal, pushing a beleaguered health system to the brink.”
"The Himalayan nation has a fraction of India’s population – and of its health resources – but its weekly coronavirus cases and deaths are among the highest in the world on a per capita basis. Nepal has recorded roughly 163 cases per 100,000 people over the last week, according to World Health Organization figures. India, where a second wave triggered rounds of emergency aid pledges, recorded about 98. Nepal’s hospitals have been crammed to capacity or beyond for the last month. There are shortages of oxygen, medicine, and vital equipment..."

Update From Nepal School Projects,
Feb. 6, 2021
A Year ago today, an intrepid NSP band of volunteers were trekking through the villages of Kavre visiting our completed Projects for 2019/20. Hard to believe, with all that has happened this year. NSP Nepal has continued to complete work there, as the main Covid outbreaks have been in Kathmandu, with the villages being relatively safe. Great news for them but daunting for us from a fundraising perspective.
Our last request for donations, just before Christmas raised about $10,000.00 Our annual budget is $100,000.00 So please we need your help, no matter what the amount.
Please visit our website to donate: www.nepalschoolprojects.ca
On a recent Skype call with Babulal and Suraj, they reported the following developments:
1. Drinking water projects: built in 3 different villages, will be completed totally in 2 months
3. Chamran Basi School - work completed included a new roof on an existing school (originally built by Michael), latrines and drinking water.
The villagers have been very involved in completing the grunt work with many women carrying stone for the construction of buildings. Gravel is made by hand with a hammer. NSP Nepal reports that the villagers have been extremely pleased with the progress and are very happy to work with NSP. It is so important that drinking water and latrines be available to all.
Thank you for your continued support.
Instruction during Covid19
In February of 2020, a group of us were able to go to Nepal to visit some of the villages. These are some brief comments from our, “first time” travellers:
Our little band of NSP supporters trekked into the village of Kumari, where NSP has recently built a new primary school, water tap and latrines. We also distributed new school bags to each of the school children so that they can carry their books to and from home each day. If only we could have bottled up the looks of pride on the faces of those children as they sported their new school bags and showed off their new school.
As we enter this holiday season, we at Nepal School Projects, would like to THANK YOU for your past support.
With your financial help, we have been able to carry on our vital work in the poor mountain villages of Nepal. Thanks to you, hundreds of children have a dry, safe roof over their heads while they attend school classes. Thousands have the benefit of clean drinking water and sanitary latrines.
Covid-19 prevents us from holding our traditional, annual fundraiser and today we are asking you to make an online donation, so that our work in these remote villages can continue. As much as NSP has done, there is still so much to do.
With the input of our Board members in Nepal, we choose the most critical projects, such as water taps to deliver clean water. Many of our aging school buildings need repair. Many schools still do not have working latrines attached, forcing children to go home during their school day in order to relieve themselves. Covid19 has not helped the situation in Nepal. In the early days of the pandemic, NSP provided funds for sacks of rice for distribution in the remote villages. As a new lockdown is imminent the same request is expected, therefore more funds are needed.
We desperately need your help to support these poor villages.
Nepal School Projects wishes you a safe and happy Holiday Season. THANK YOU!!!
