Kathmandu, Nepal: The Australian Government has announced 7 million dollars in emergency assistance to Nepal.
The Australian government has said that the money will be provided through the United Nations and other non-governmental organizations for the purchase of equipment needed to prevent the Covid-19 outrage in Nepal.
The Australian government has made it clear that Nepali hospitals in the border areas with India, which have been severely affected by the corona, are being provided with essential health supplies, PPE, Covid-19 test kits, and training of health workers.
Along with Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will also be assisted in fighting the recent Corona epidemic, the government said.
Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne said in a statement on Friday that he was committed to help countries, including Nepal, in the northeastern Indian Ocean.
Ambassador Mahesh Raj Dahal, who was recalled last month, had appealed for a meeting with a representative of the Australian government.
Soon after, Nepali community leaders Man K.C, Deepak Khadka, Krishna Hamal and others met the influential Minister David Coleman and demanded immediate help.
