Women in a rural village in Nepal have been mailing condoms to their husbands working abroad to protect them from sexually transmitted diseases, a news report said yesterday.

The women in Pang village, in the mid-western mountains of Nepal, have been writing to their husbands urging them not to have sex with other women.

But they also mailed them condoms so that if they are unfaithful, at least they will have safe sex.

The Kantipur said social workers have been counseling women in this village about sexually transmitted diseases over the past two years.

An estimated three million Nepalese work in foreign countries to support their families back in Nepal, doing mostly manual work in the construction industry. - Sapa-AP
