Anshika Sharma appeals for support to Nepal facing Covid crisis

14 May 2021 | Angelique Reyes

Like many other Asian nations, Nepal somehow managed to escape the first wave without any serious damage. But the second wave has been devastating. Daily infections hovered at around 150 at the beginning of April but in a month the figure has passed 9,000. More than 4,000 people have died. Thousands of people have lost their loved ones in Nepal, a nation now reeling from a second wave of the virus. Nepali health officials say the current daily positivity rate is nearly 50%, meaning that one in two people are testing positive for Covid-19.

Talking about the terrible situations in her country, Miss Universe Nepal 2020 Anshika Sharma took to her social media to share about the condition of her nation and urged her followers, fellow NRNs and pageant fraternity requesting them to donate to trusted sources or to spread the word as the country is in urgent need of medical equipment such as oxygen cylinders, concentrators, test kits, and vaccines.



As the virus plagues the country, Anshika also shared how their health infrastructure is not able to cope with everyday rise in the positivity rate which has reached at a scary 50% and is expected to worsen in the near future. She added, “My heart goes out to my fellow Nepalese. Please know that you are on my mind 24/7 and that I hope making you proud in the Miss Universe stage will help you take your mind off negativity and the situation.”

Asking her country-folks to take care of themselves and of other around, to do the basics and stay safe, she also thanked all the individuals, groups and organizations who have been keeping Nepal in their prayers asking them to continue the prayers and help the country in any way possible.

For Anshika Sharma, Miss Universe Nepal 2020, representing Nepal, is in a true sense, a moment of pride as she would compete with like-minded young beauty queens. The charming diva is manifesting her dreams since she believes that if you want something, you need to manifest it. She also mentioned that it’s not just her dream but a moment to make Nepal proud.



A few hours ago, the National Costume competition was held where Anshika’s ode to the mountaineers and the Everest was a treat for the eyes. Taking the mountains to the world, she represented Nepal with grace and charm honoring the crown of her nation.

Under Anshika’s delegation, Nepal has definitely come across as a strong country at the Miss Universe 2020 and might as well pioneer a high position at the platform. The 69th edition of Miss Universe i.e., Miss Universe 2020 is to be held on 16th May 2021 at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino and Hotel in Florida, USA where Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi from South Africa will crown her successor at the end of the grand coronation event.
