Working together for the underprivileged in Gorkha, Nepal
Awareness and Education
Healthcare workers reported to the Gorkha Foundation that there were specific problems reaching certain communities that were highly marginalized during the second wave of COVID. Particularly, folks in the Gurung and Dalit communities were not responding positively to healthcare workers' attempts to reach out with testing and treatment for COVID. The Gorkha Foundation brought in community leaders from various communities. Collaboratively, the community leaders, healthcare workers, and Gorkha Foundation team developed an awareness campaign for radio and social media.
