Nepal’s COVID-19 tally is 42 now. Lockdown is likely to extend. I told the landlord that I can’t receive funds so I can’t pay rent until the lockdown ends. So I’m using rent money for groceries and other items that I need. We are only allowed to go out once in an evening but we have to stay in 500m radius.

Few days ago I received an email that IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) is short-staffed but they are still processing the application. But surely there will be delays. It will really help if CFIC can extend help for a year.

Thank you. I make excellent tea so probably I’ll invite you all for a cup of tea once I’m in Canada.
