Kathmandu, November 27
The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) has extended a support worth USD 29,419 (approximately nearly Rs 3 million) to the Paropakar Maternity and Women’s Hospital in Thapathali.
The support was a part of the ‘Intensive care unit improvement by providing medical equipment and supplies’ project led by KOICA volunteer Dason Ahn.
The bilateral cooperation agency says it provided hardware and software support by handing over medical equipment and supporting continuous health awareness classes to the pregnant women as well as caretakers in the hospital premises.
KOICA has been partnering with the Paropakar Maternity and Women’s Hospital since last year.
KOICA says its volunteer programme is one of the main programmes to contribute to socio-economic development of the partner countries at the grassroots. “KOICA dispatches Korean national volunteers to partner government organisations as per the need of expertise, knowledge, and experience.”
