Australian Award grant to support the underprivileged Mushahar community in the Karjanha Municipality of the Siraha District in southeast Nepal. PHRD Nepal used the funds to provide materials and orientations to build awareness on hygiene and sanitation in order to help the community cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 139 households received sanitation materials such as a bucket with a tap, soaps, soap dishes, and face masks. More than 600 people participated in hygiene awareness orientation. Because the pandemic has affected access to contraceptive devices, PHRD Nepal also provided counseling to 14 individuals on how to avoid unwanted pregnancies during the lockdown.
