Fairmed supports MoHP with essential medical equipment

Fairmed Nepal responded immediately after the first COVID-19 case was detected in Nepal with the support to the local government in its working districts. 

After the formal waiver from Social Welfare Council to divert up to 20 percent of the total budget for COVID-19 response, Fairmed participated proactively in a joint procurement initiative led by the Association of International NGOs in Nepal (AIN) along with 15 other INGOs. On May 6, 2020, 16 AIN member organizations including Fairmed handed over medical assistance package worth Rs 45.3 million amidst a program organized at the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) premises. Nirmala Sharma, the country coordinator, represented Fairmed at the event where Hon’ble Minister for MoWCSC Parbat Gurung accompanied by Officiating Member Secretary of SWC Shiva Kumar Basnet and AIN chair Achyut Kumar Luitel handed over the health commodities to the Hon’ble Minister for MoHP Bhanubhakta Dhakal
