In December HCC held a fundraiser/matching campaign to provide warm winter clothes to 292 students in Benighat, Dhading Nepal.
We raised almost $10k!
Mun Maya submitted this report on the distribution of winter clothing:
Children in rural communities may find it difficult to attend school every day and achieve their dreams due to a lack of proper school uniforms. There should be at least two dresses available for wearing and washing. There are many health problems associated with wearing a shabby, dirty, and torn dress. HCC has been providing school dress, personal care items, and school supplies to these students for the past two years. We felt that providing them with new winter clothes was the best decision that our team made.
In the first week of February 2023, HCC staff Laxmi, Dinesh, Shristi, and HCC youth Koshish and HCC president Saraswati Tamang traveled through five schools in Benighat, Rorang Dhading.
- Beldada Basic School
- Maharudra Basic School
- Richok Irang Basic School
- Tinkanya Bageshwori School
- Bhumisthan Basic School
During this trip, the HCC team distributed winter clothes that included pairs of warm school tracksuits, t-shirts, school shoes, socks, mufflers, caps, and handkerchiefs.The schools and families of the supported students were grateful for the support and expressed how it would positively affect the students’ lives.
This positive impact on the lives of these students would not have been possible without your sponsors and donors. All the credit goes to you all. Thank you so much for supporting Himalayan Children’s Charities.
