KATHMANDU, MAY 13
Sastodeal has partnered with Women for Human Rights (WHR)/ Chhahari in coordination with Nepal Medical Association to provide daily cooked meals to healthcare workers deputed in Covid wards of the public hospitals.
The initiative aims to help the frontline health care workers including doctors, nurses, drivers, and cleaners that are working round-the-clock for an average of 14-hour shift battling Covid-19 while risking their own lives, and to relieve them from the challenges of access to cooked and nutritious meals.
According to the Sastodeal, during the first Covid-19 lockdown, WHR served over 40,000 cooked meals to daily-wage earners most severely affected by the economic fallout of the pandemic. At the time Sastodeal supported the food drive by providing over 1,300 kg of rice, which was collected with the help of its customer network.
During this period of prohibitory order, Sastodeal is offering help to the frontline workers in the public hospitals in Kathmandu and Nepalgunj.
The platform has urged all to contribute to their initiative in a bid to show gratitude to the healthcare frontliners for their sacrifice they make every day, by offering them nutritious meals.
One can donate 5 kgs rice to WHR/ Chhahari and help support the cooked meal initiative.
