Chepangs living in absolute poverty in Nepal are starving for weeks due to COVID-19 lock down. IIAD is collaborating with local communities and support partners to provide basic food for Chepangs in Jimling and other Chepang communities in Nepal. The COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown have resulted in a loss of economic opportunities and income for daily wage workers and Chepang community people, and have severely impacted their access to food, especially daily wage workers and Chepang community people, of which 90% live below the poverty line.
