  • Lalitpur, Nepal 2 September 2020 – An EU-funded project to support Nepal’s informal sector workers hit hard by the COVID-19 prevention measures has provied them with work producing facemasks.

    Immediately after the COVID-19 lockdown, the UN-Habitat led project, Parya Sampada, was repurposed to support women in the project area to make face masks and other personal protective equipment. The project, which is funded by the Switch-ASIA Programme of European Union, provided raw materials and skill trainings.

    “My source of livelihood has completely stopped since the lockdown. I would have been left with no income if Parya Sampada project of UN Habitat had not initiated and provided me with the opportunity to produce emergency safety gear items during this pandemic,” said one of the informal settlement workers, Bidhya Narkami, who had lost her work due to the pandemic.

    Bidhya is working with 13 other members from the Bungamati community,to produce the face masks and other material.

    “If this situation persists with no income generation activities, it will be very difficult for us to bounce back to our normal life after the lockdown” she said. “We don’t have control over what is happening so everyone should join hands together to provide opportunities and plans.”

  • Kathmandu, 13 July 2020 – UN-Habitat has installed touch-free handwashing facilities in some slum settlements, vegetable markets and temple areas to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Nepal’s capital.

    The facilities at the four vegetable markets are visited by over 10,000 customers and vendors daily. The market management groups of the small scale vegetable vendors are promoting social distancing, mask wearing and handwashing for the safety of the visitors.

    “We had never heard of COVID-19 but now it is living with us. Handwashing facilities not only keep us safer but help stop the stigma against slum dwellers,” said Bhagwati Adhikari, Secretary, Nepal Mahila Ekta Samaj, a women’s association for those living in the informal settlements.

    The ‘Water for Life Project’ is supported mainly by the people of Fukuoka, Japan. Communities were in the forefront in selecting sites, deciding the management plan, managing the water, refilling the liquid soap regularly and ensuring the safe discharge of wastewater.

    Communities, mainly women, came together to form a management committee that takes care of the hand washing facility and sanitation provisions for their communities.

    “Returning home from outside we never know what we bring with us. This facility helps to keep our neighbourhood safe as we do not have running water in each house,” said Bimala Lama, Chairperson, Nepal Mahila Ekta Samaj.

    UN-Habitat has been promoting hand washing from more than a decade in support of Nepal’s national sanitation campaign. UN-Habitat is also installing handwashing facilities in 64 rural municipalities targeting 1.4 million people.
