Thankful to the supporters, Saraswati Mali from Thecho, Lalitpur who came with her five-month old baby to receive relief materials, hopes to prevent her baby during difficult times during monsoon rains.

According to Zhang Zhenshan, UN-Habitat Program Manager for China, the initiative particularly supported vulnerable women like elderly, single, pregnant/having newborn babies.

The initiative is a joint effort of Tencent, China Women’s Development Foundation, UN-Habitat, and Lumanti together with a number of local saving and credit co-operatives.
