UMN also helped another RM- Palhinandan to establish a five-bedded isolation centre along with surgical masks and PPE set worth NRP 70,000 (approx. USD 593). A health desk in Maheshpur is also set up. This is one of the busiest border points at the Nepal India border. UMN provided logistics support worth NRP 50,000 (approx.
