This second wave of Covid-19 pandemic has plunged one of the poorest nations in Asia, Nepal into a public health disaster. As the pandemic worsens, needs are growing. Putting into consideration for the food insecurity to the population, who are having difficulties, the Women’s Foundation has been distributing the Food Relief Packages primarily to single women, daily working women, poor, people with disabilities and people in need. Distributing Food Relief Packages for the families in need who are affected by COVID-19 Pandemic is the main goal of this program. With food supplies, we will be able to help the vulnerable people who are excessively affected in the community.

Celebration of Women’s Day

The theme of Women’s day 2021 is: Women in leadership: achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world. This year’s International Women’s Day campaign has chosen the theme #ChooseToChallenge with the idea that a challenged world is an alert world and individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions. “We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality,” “We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.” WFN actively participated and coordinated in the concerned activities in the day.
