Petition Provide Emergency Support to Treat COVID Patients in Nepal
There is a stark warning that the COVID crisis is going to be brutally bad in coming days in Nepal. Without pause, we urge the Gov. of UK to take swift effort to ease the pain and suffering of many by directly donating the essential materials (Oxygen & Ventilators) to the COVID patients in Nepal.
Crisis in Nepal is unrecognized globally due to its low presence in international affairs. As an under-resourced country, situation like this could claim many more lives which can be saved through minimal support from the highly privileged countries like the UK. Humanity is in danger and those who can make a difference should take an action immediately. Any support from the UK would give positive message to local people to fight against the disease both physically and emotionally.

MPs to debate Covid-19 vaccines and Nepal
MPs will debate Covid-19 vaccines and Nepal on Tuesday 6 July in the main House of Commons chamber. This is an adjournment debate.
Adjournment debates are half-hour debates at the end of each day's sitting. They are an opportunity for an individual backbench MP to raise an issue and receive a response from the relevant Minister, however they do not end in a vote nor can they change the law.
The debate will start at around 7.00pm, after the conclusion of debate on the Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill. It will be led by Mr Virendra Sharma MP, Member of Parliament for Ealing, Southall.
