RSS

The British government has announced additional funds to help Nepal fight the increasing rate of coronavirus in the country. The support is to be provided through the British Department for International Development (DFID). Earlier, DFID provided 8.2 million pounds for coronavirus prevention and treatment and the amount has been increased to 10 million pounds. Though DFID has been providing financial assistance to Nepal annually, this support is an additional amount as during the 2015 earthquake, the Nepali Embassy in London has said.

Meanwhile, the Gorkha Welfare Trust and other organisations in London are also providing necessary support to the former Gorkha army personnel, said the Embassy spokesperson Sharad Raj Aran. The additional funds announced for Nepal includes the 100 million pounds that the DFID is providing to some developing countries to fight coronavirus. DFID has so far donated a financial assistance of 844 million pounds across the world since the outbreak of coronavirus.
