January Volunteer Dispatch pt.1

A cornerstone of the HCC philosophy is philanthropy. The students in the Peak Program in Kathmandu volunteer at various events and centers in their community as well as creating their own programs to target local needs. 

In January several students volunteered with a local organization helping provide nutritious food to hungry people, throughout the city. These are their stories, in their words.

I have been volunteering for a project called ‘Food for the Hungry’. In the early morning we gathered and started preparing food. We prepared fried rice and potato curry. We packed almost 50 to 60 packets of the food. We started from around 6 am in the morning and finished packing at around 8 am. Then we headed to Pashupatinath for the distribution. We carried the water and the food and 

then headed to the destination. We started the distribution to all the ones needed. The happy faces made our hearts flutter and we felt very glad that I got to be a part of the project. – Sonu

I volunteered with the Food for Hungry organization. The main objective of the organization is about giving food to people who really need it, especially around religious sites. So on Saturday as it is my day off I decided to be a part of the group. I woke up super early and headed to the place where we cooked and packed the food. It was like a little kitchen adventure! After that, we went to Chabahil and Pashupati to give out the food to those who needed it. Seeing the smiles on their faces made me so happy inside. It felt amazing to be part of something that brings joy to people. – Angela

I volunteered with ‘Food for Hungry.’ We in Annex were part of the preparation step, cutting vegetables and cooking. The cooked food was placed into aluminum foil boxes and prepared for transportation. Our group distributed these meals to areas like Chabahil and Pashupatinath. It was heartwarming to see the joy on people’s faces as they received the food. – Sunita
