Template for the letter to the MP
My name is __, and I live in your constituency. I am writing to you because I am deeply concerned about the current Covid situation in Nepal. The infection and death rates are among the highest in the world, and the health system is no longer able to cope with the number of cases in the country. The UK has had strong social, cultural, and military relationships with Nepal for over 200 years now. It is vital that we step up as a nation to support our Nepali friends in need.
If the UK government could send medical supplies urgently to Nepal, it would save thousands of lives. I am hearing news that people are dying because of a lack of oxygen, and there is a clear and urgent need for more oxygen cylinders, concentrators, and generation plants, as well as therapeutic drugs, testing kits, and personal protective equipment. I urge you to please request the UK government to arrange for these supplies to be sent to Nepal without delay. We must step up now and do the right thing.
Thank you very much for your time, and for your consideration.
