Covid-19 - HI has organised 1000 online rehabilitation sessions for patients in Nepal

Emergency Rehabilitation
Nepal

Humanity & Inclusion (HI) has adapted its activities to the Covid-19 epidemic in Nepal, where more than 164,000 people have been contaminated by the virus.

? HI

One thousand online rehabilitation sessions

By adapting its working methods to the Covid-19 epidemic, HI has continued to provide rehabilitation care to patients in Nepal. Since physiotherapists were no longer able to visit people’s homes, they organised some 1000 online sessions by phone or WhatsApp. HI’s rehabilitation project is critically important in Nepal, where it also supports five rehabilitation centres that provide physiotherapy care and orthopaedic-fitting services to thousands of people.

Mask distribution and awareness-raising

HI has also distributed more than 32,000 masks, disinfectant, hydroalcoholic gel, and more than 16,000 gloves to people in need in Karnali, Lumbini, and other provinces. It provided local people with information on Covid-19, transmission risks, prevention measures, etc., including by producing videos, booklets and posters[1]. HI made videos with subtitles and in sign language adapted to people with hearing impairments, in partnership with the World Health Organization. We also aired two videos on television in Nepal.
