MaHa Jodi helps out in Kavre
Jun 1, 2015-
Actor duo Haribansha Acharya and Madan Krishna Shrestha are currently in Kavre, distributing relief supplies to the victims in quake-affected areas. The relief supplies were contributed by different organisations like Lions Club, Alka Hospital and Patanjali Yog Pith. The Lions Clubs together have contributed the supplies to 50 families while the Patanjali Yog Pith managed the relief supplies for 127 families. Currently the duo is distributing blankets, tarpaulin sheets, and food to the victims in Balthali VDC. While distributing the relief items, high priority was given to elderly people, pregnant women and impoverished families.
“We should not be bickering at the government. In times like these, we, the people, and the government should work together to uplift the society.” said Madan Krishna Shrestha.
Acharya too emphasised on the need to work together as a whole. “We should work together to rebuild our country,” he said.
The team has already distributed relief material in different villages of Kavre like Dapcha, Shankhu, Tukucha Nala, Khopasi and also in the Sankhu municipality.
The locals said that seeing the actors in their villages has provided them with the psychological support to deal with the trauma.
