A project from Long Yang e.V.
in Kathmandu, Nepal

Together with our Nepalese partner organisation Akasha Academy NGO we support the management of the corona crisis by distributing food parcels and medical supplies and in treating people in need.

Nepal is in a Covid-19 state of emergency: The effects of the second Corona wave are hitting the people particularly hard right now. The situation is much more dramatic than last year and the number of infections continues to rise daily. Protective clothing, oxygen and medical equipment are in short supply. Even medical staff are dependent on outside support.  
We help straight away where help it is needed. Unbureaucratically and directly.

Oxygen and medical equipment for Healthposts
During the first Corona wave, we have already equipped several health posts and hospitals with protective clothing, while the government's aid was slow to arrive and did not even reach some remote areas. The situation in Nepal is extremely serious. As a country with an already fragile health and care system, any outside support can save lives.

Food shortage in Nepal - our aid packages for families
For many Nepalese, especially day labourers, income has completely disappeared. They have no money to provide food for themselves and their families. Government aid programmes often do not reach those in need and are not sufficient to protect the population from hunger. Our long-standing partners in Nepal buy food, pack it and distribute it where it is urgently needed. This is how we ensure basic supplies of rice, lentils, oil and eggs for hundreds of families. 

We ask you for your support! Every Euro goes directly without deduction into the procurement and transport of food for the needy and in medical supplies for the care of emergency patients. 
 
Situation in Nepal:

Status: May 2021
Since the end of April 2021, large parts of Nepal have again been under a strict lockdown. People can only get basic necessities in the morning hours. However, due to the loss of income over the last ten months, this is becoming increasingly difficult. Many people are starving because their income has disappeared.
Hospitals and health stations lack medical equipment, oxygen and vaccines, among other things. Overall, there are very few hospitals in Nepal with intensive care beds and sufficient nursing staff. And the dramatic situation in neighbouring India also has consequences: Vaccines are no longer exported due to India's own demand and are missing for the immunisation campaign in Nepal. The dramatic effects that a lack of immunisation and protective measures have on Nepal can be seen in the highest number of new infections in the world in the country.
