March 30, 2020 Since COVID-19 has taken the world by storm claiming more than 38749 lives and affecting more than 801061 people globally by now, we all are facing the Lockdown order from the Government of Nepal in an effort to minimize its impact and to avoid its outbreak.
We are sensitive to the Government orders against mass gathering since it may risk the outbreak of the pandemic. Evaluating the current situation, we have already sent the children residing in hostel (Kavre Branch) to their respective homes since the risk of self contamination in group remains high. The children have already reached their respective families and will stay in their villages until the next orders from the government.
Since the hostel in Chaure Deurali -4, Kavre has remained vacant prior to the departure of the children, as our social responsibility, the Laxmi Pratisthan family has decided to provide its hostel facilities as Quarantine and Isolation Centre which will be under the management of Chauri Deurali Rural Municipal. Laxmi Pratisthan will manage the provision of food required for the patients during their required stay. The hostel will only reopen after desinfecting the facility.
