Nepal is one of the world’s poorest countries with 45% of the population living below the poverty line. 50% of nepalese children under the age of 3, suffer from stunted growth. The country is highly unimmunized due to natural disasters such as earthquakes, recurrent floods, and landslides. No hospital in the country completely meets earthquake resistant standards. Between 100,000 to 200,000 persons are internally displaced with difficult access to health care.
Because of the civil war many structural problems of health staff appear: absenteeism, lack of supervision and problems with the supply chain to remote areas are exacerbated by the violent conflict. Since then only 27% of the population has access to adequate sanitation and 30% lack access to safe drinking water. The main causes of morbidity are diarhorreal disease, dysentery, cholera and typhoid.
One of our goal is to provide the Helpless Children home the necessary Health Care especially during this tough time.
