Altogether 61 children from four different organizations, namely – Conflict Victimized Orphan Support Center, Women’s and Children Social Welfare, Bal Chetna Samuha and Sahara Group, participated the program.
Each child was provided with a pair of tracksuit, a pair of socks, a pair of shoes, a cap, some stationary goods, gifts and some refreshments.
WHAT THEY SAID:
Mohan Chaudhari from Conflict Victimized Orphan Support Center said, he was overwhelmed with excitement because he had not been to such picnic programs and on top of it he also got some clothes as he possessed only a school uniform and one extra set of clothes.
Sushila Rai from Women’s and Children Social Welfare said, “I had a wonderful time. I knew beforehand that we would be getting clothes and shoes from Help Nepal Network, but did not know that we would get gifts as well. I enjoyed games although I could not be the winner. I hope I will win next time.
