For our fifth distribution, we reached out to 147 waste workers at four different sites. This distribution was very eventful for the project because we not only provided ration materials, awareness, and medicines but also protective jumpsuits to our waste workers.

The distribution in all four sites was facilitated by Himalayan Climate Initiative (HCI). The first distribution of the day was conducted in Budhanilkantha for three waste workers and their families. The were provided with ration materials. For the second distribution at another site in Budhanilkantha, 26 waste workers were provided assistance in the form of safety gears and ration materials. 19 waste workers were provided with ration materials whereas 7 waste workers were provided with protective jumpsuits.

The third distribution of the day was conducted in Bhaktapur for 63 waste workers. 33 waste workers were provided with ration materials whereas 30 waste workers were provided with protective jumpsuit. The final distribution of the day was conducted in Swayambhu for 55 waste workers where 24 were provided with ration materials and 31 were provided with safety gears.

The beneficiaries were delighted to have provided with assistance in the form of ration materials, awareness as well as protective jumpsuits. One of the waste workers expressed his gratitude to the project for helping ease their lives at a time of crisis.
