Nepalis in South Korea send medical supplies to Nepal

Nepalis residing and working in South Korea have sent various medical supplies, including 4,000 coronavirus testing kits, to Nepal.

The kits arrived at the Tribhuwan International Airport on Friday. 

Under a call of the Non-resident Nepalis Association (NRNA) South Korea, Nepalis in Korea had launched a campaign to collect funds for the purchase a few days ago.

The supplies are said to be worth Rs 8 million.

As a symbolic gesture, NRNA SK handed over a section of the equipment to Nepal’s acting ambassador to South Korea, Ram Singh Thapa, in Seoul on Thursday.

It has been learned that the kits they have sent can detect infection results in three hours.
