Nepal, like other countries, was heavily affected by the global pandemic of COVID-19. The sudden implementation of nationwide lockdown in 2020 March adversely impacted the daily-wage workers. For the daily-wage workers, it appeared to be the major factor of depriving them of their only source of income. This situation brought most of the domestic migrant workers living in Kathmandu valley under the problem of food shortage. Having witnessed the worsening condition of poor and disadvantaged people, Peace for People donated 1 sack of lentils and 10 sacks of rice to the Koteshwar Youth Reform Club for launching a Food Relief Support Program, which fed regular meals to around 1,000 people by adopting the necessary safety measures.
During this period, the new realities - working from home, temporary unemployment and lack of physical contact with acquaintances and colleagues - made many people vulnerable to mental stress and dissatisfaction. Hence, Peace for People started a Social Media Campaign with a motive to generate and spread positivity among the people during this difficult time. The videos - of members of the organization sharing the experiences and opinions about the COVID-19 impact on society - were uploaded and shared through Facebook and Instagram. The campaigners spoke about the need of being optimistic and dealing with this time with great physical and mental care. Similarly, the message - to not believe in fake news that goes around on the Internet which directly has a negative impact on people - was flowed through those videos. The videos sharing the message of Do's and Don'ts of COVID-19 were found to have been watched by 50,000 people across the nation.
Even amidst the pandemic, Peace for People continued its educational support program by donating masks and hand sanitizers to more than 300 students and 30 teachers of different schools of Dhading district.
