KATHMANDU: The Embassy of Nepal in South Korea is conducting a ‘stress management and voluntary repatriation’ programme targeting Nepali migrant workers.

Labour Councillor Dilliram Bastola at the Embassy said that the programme is being organised to reduce mental stress and cases of suicide among Nepali workers based on consultations with the experts.

According to Bastola, the programme would be organised on December 1 and 2 in two different South Korean cities having high number of Nepalis.

The Embassy is making preparations for the programme during a time when higher number of Nepali workers are suffering from depression, possibly due to job related challenges, home sickness among others. “The programme will encourage Nepali migrants to contribute to their own country’s prosperity through entrepreneurship development after repatriation,” Bastola shared.

On December 1, the orientation programme is scheduled to be held at Cheonan Support Centre for Foreign Workers in Cheonan city and at Hyundai Industrial Park on December 2. The Embassy has appealed to Nepali workers to attend the programme at the location convenient to them.

Senior consultant Dr Kedar Rayamajhi is scheduled to give his presentation, counselling and deliberations to the migrant workers.

So far, around 58,000 Nepalis have landed in South Korea through Employment Permit System (EPS) while there are some 40,000 Nepalis in South Korea at present, according to the Embassy.
