The Himalayan Times and Annapurna Post in association with Kumari Cinema Hall organised a movie show, ‘The Incredibles’ for children of SOS Children’s Village and Research and Cooperative Organisation on April 8. There were altogether almost 200 students belonging to age group 3-16, from both organisations.

Narendra Thapa, a staffer at the SOS Children’s Village, seemed busy managing a group of 100 odd children. He said, “The examinations are over and the new session has not started yet. So the children are enjoying their free time playing games, watching television and going to different places”. SOS has been organising various trips, even to places outside the valley like Pokhara and Chitwan. They also organised a picnic and fun activities for the children so that they gain wider experiences.

Krishna Pd Joshi, Vice-Chairman of Research and Cooperative Organisation, had come alongwith 95 children from his organisation. He said, “Our organisation is working for the welfare of the children who are victims of conflict. But owing to lack of funds we have not been able to organise such programmes on our own. We are grateful to the organisers for making it possible for us.”

Ashraf Shah, manager of Kumari Cinema, was pleased to see the joy in the faces of the children and is happy to be a part of the function. The Himalayan Times and Annapurna Post had organised a show of the film ‘Spiderman’ in Jai Nepal Cinema, for children of some other organisations earlier.

Chaudhary Group, Himalayan Snacks and Kanishka Marketing contributed with their products.
