The inauguration ceremony of Society for Animal Welfare (SAW), a group teamed up for stray animal welfare was held on Thursday at Hotel Yak & Yeti, Durbar Marg. With an aim to raise awareness about diseases control and population management, SAW organized the initiative to ensure improved medical treatment to stray animals.
The gathering was graced by the presence of Prof. Hirendra Man Pradhan, Chairman of Kathmandu Engineering College and chairperson of SAW; Ambassador of Brazil to Nepal, Maria Teresa Pessôa as the Chief Guest of Honor and General Manager of Hotel Yak & Yeti, Monica Scheiblauer as the honorable guest. The event was followed by Dark Room Photo Exhibition by one of the members of SAW, Dr. Pranav Raj Joshi.
The event was hosted by one of the members of SAW, Neeva Mathema Pradhan. “We have especial day for cows and dogs but we turn helpless when they end up to streets. We are trying to bring awareness on how to give stray animals a better life through providing Anti Rabies Vaccination and Spaying,” said Prof. Pradhan.
“Animals feel different emotions as we are capable of feeling so, we are morally obligated to meet their needs. Their need to live a safe and secured life closely relates to enhancing animal welfare as it includes ensuring both physical and mental well-being of the animals,” expressed Maria Teresa Pessôa.
“Liquid emulsion was used long time before when photographic paper was not invented. This is a traditional practice of photography. I have tried to show the ancient lifestyle of people especially from Bhaktapur through liquid emulsion,” asserts Vet Joshi.
“It is thus, through the depiction of art that I have tried to relate my intense connection and love for animals,” he added.
