World Renew has been working in Nepal since 2015.
Located in South Asia, Nepal is home to some of the tallest mountains, including Mount Everest. It has a population of about 31 million, and the most commonly practiced religions are Hinduism and Buddhism. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world, and the UN has estimated that at least 40% of the population is living in poverty.
COUNTRY COVID UPDATE
Currently, Nepal is in a government ordered lockdown. Because many of World Renew’s disaster response programs currently revolve around community meetings, training and gatherings, we have temporarily paused programming, falling in line with national legislation. In the meantime, staff continue taking advantage of online technologies to do training and capacity building of local teams, ensuring we are poised and ready to recommence work as soon as it is deemed safe by the local government.
