Long lasting devastation of the 2015 Earthquake continues to affect the daily lives of people in Nepal, espacially regarding healthcare. Just $8 provides medicinal support, transportation to and from, and nutritious meals while the patient is in treatment.
Most of the rural people of Lalitpur District are not getting basic health services due to the remoteness or the area. They have to travel several hours on rough roads just to reach a hospital. More than half of the area of the Lalitpur District lacks the basic facilities to live.
Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world ranking 18th (IMF, 2014), and the second poorest country in Asia. Nepal has had significant progress in its first Millennium Development Goal which has reduced poverty by 25%; however, half of the population still lives on or below the poverty line. In 2015, Nepal experienced a devastating earthquake that destroyed much of the infrastructure of the country along with economic strains outside of the people’s control.
GreaterGood.org partners with The Himalayan Nepal Foundation to provide aid to the poor by tackling one of the key areas of issue: improving health and education conditions in rural areas. By providing emergency medical support for those in poverty, the Nepalese people will get the boost they need to start recovering from the disasters that have beset them.
