KATHMANDU, Oct 9: A local non government organization has extended support to a poverty-stricken Majhi family.
The 'Youth of Baglung' provided the family food commodities to celebrate the great Nepali festival of Bada Dashain. The family of Sunmati Mahji from Maldhunga, which is located at the border area between Baglung and Parbat, was handed over food commodities worth Rs 10,000, organization's Suman Regmi said.
The volunteers involved in social works as relief, rescue, support and awareness programmes saved money from their daily expenses to raise fund for the donation. Regmi added that the organization has provided rice grains, oil and meat among other food items under the banner 'Let Everyone Celebrate Dashain'.
The Majhi family – which has traditional roots in the fishing business – has been toiling to make a living by collecting pebbles and gravels at the banks of the Kaligandaki river. RSS
