Food aid for flood-hit in Morang

Kathmandu, August 8:

Round Table-Nepal (RTN), an international organisation, recently provided 300 food items and biscuits to flood-victims of Morang. The humanitarian organisation had collected and handed over one lakh rupees along with 400 cartons of clothes to flood-hit people in the Tarai last year.

According to Amit Begani, secretary at the RTN, the organisation has built over 100 school room-blocks in different parts of the country.

He said they have built 60 school room-blocks in Kathmandu, 20 each in Morang and Parsa. “Ten thousand students are benefiting from the buildings,” Begani said.

The organisation has also provided scholarships, stationary materials and other to over 40 students from different schools, the RTN said in a press release.

With the motto of ‘build the nation through education’, the RTN was established in 1999 on the sponsorship of Round Table India and Round Table Germany.

Round Table Nepal, a non-political, non-racial, non-denominational organisation, has over 190 members headed by its president Tabler Hemant Golchha.

“The RTN believes that it is important to find a lasting solution to lift the socially underprivileged. We can do this by educating the youth and building infrastructure in the form of school for their uplift,’ the release added.
