Support local NGO response efforts

June update:

While daily new cases in Nepal are now decreasing, the country continues to have the highest rate of confirmed deaths per capita anywhere in Asia. Test positivity remains high, and less than 10% of the population has received a COVID vaccination. According to a One Heart Worldwide report, out of 100 PCR tests, 37.7 persons had positive cases. This is more than three times higher than that of India.

Hospitals remain heavily impacted and the economic impacts of the lockdown continue to affect at-risk populations. Give2Asia’s local partners are working to complement Government relief efforts. They are urgently seeking more funding to address the surge.


Give2Asia is partnering with trusted nonprofit organizations to support frontline health workers and institutions responding to the coronavirus pandemic.  Our role is to empower our local NGO partners to support these communities through this time of challenge. Currently, our funding priorities include: 

  • Food and sanitation materials support to residents of shelter 
  • Livelihood support 
  • Emergency medical supplies and safety materials
