May 1, International Labor Day

May 1 , International Labour day: COVID crisis has already put many Nepali labours out of work. For daily wage workers, lockdown is more dangerous than the corona virus. Daily wage labourers are among the hardest hit by the restrictions. The situation is very uncertain and it’s difficult to survive for them due to lack of food.

The Women’s Foundation is doing our best to feed the hungry coordinating with the locals and distributing the cooked food for more than 650 people per day where the hungry people can be ascertained with effective distribution via Open Heart Kitchen.

Happy international labor day to all workers out there. Let’s recognize the efforts of all those who work tirelessly and build a place worth living .
