Kathmandu: MetLife Foundation is contributing USD50,000 to America Nepal Medical Foundation’s (ANMF) efforts to provide essential medical care to vulnerable people impacted by the worsening Covid-19 crisis in Nepal.
ANMF is a non-profit organization founded by a group of Nepalese doctors which has been operating since 1997 with a vision of advancing healthcare in the country.
