For 10 years, the mountain nation of Nepal was wracked by civil war as a group of Maoist insurgents fought to oust the monarchy and reform the caste system in Nepal. Throughout this conflict, Heifer Nepal continued to aid villages and families throughout the country despite great risk and danger. Listen in as Puja Singh takes some time to talk with us about Heifer in the Nepali Civil War.

Thank you for calling attention to the particular hardships women face not just in times of war and conflict, but when food security is threatened. Generally speaking, women often eat last and least despite the nutritional and caloric standards they need to maintain; instead they focus on the needs of their families and communities, especially in times of hardship. Also women's contributions to agriculture and the work involved in nourishing and supporting families and communities often goes unnoticed or is consistently undervalued. Thank you to Puja for her invaluable work with Heifer International.
