COVID-19 National Anthem Thank You Awareness Campaign

COVID-19 National Anthem "Thank You" Awareness Campaign

Thank you all for participating and making our initiative successful!

Global Compact Nepal (GCN) ran a COVID-19 "Thank You" awareness campaign on April 13, 2020, coinciding with Nepali New Year 2077, to bring solidarity in the nation and take the opportunity to salute and appreciate all the front line workers, who have been working tirelessly to combat, contain and help the nation in this difficult period.

Since the majority of people were home due to an enforced lockdown, we called upon the country to play the National Anthem at 8am the morning of the Nepali New Year 2077, to thank and salute all the people on the front line -- doctors, nurses, security personnel, emergency service staff, delivery workers, cleaners, supermarket staff and everyone else keeping Nepal safe and stocked at this time of need.

The "Thank you" initiative that started as a social media campaign ended up being a nationwide directive thanks to the Prime Minister of Nepal, Rt. Hon. KP Sharma Oli, tweeting about it:

The world has come to a standstill thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. In these difficult times people need positive affirmation to help overcome the fear and anxiety of contagion. We as a nation need to support and uplift one another.

We want to bring solidarity in the nation and take this opportunity to salute and appreciate all the front line workers, who have been working tirelessly to combat, contain and help the nation in this difficult period.

We request you tune into 96.5 MHz Radio Nagarik, 101.2 MHz Classic FM or 96.1 Kantipur FM on Baishakh 1, 2077 (April 13, 2020) at 8am, to show support and solidarity for the people of Nepal and salute all front line workers helping combat COVID-19.
