Food provided to children

Kathmandu, May 14:

The Nepali Emigrants’ Literature Society today provided free meal to 60 underprivileged children under the Children’s Food Programme (CFP), Nepal, at Indra chowk.

Major Kishore Gurung, station manager of the British Forces Broadcasting Services, said this was a small gesture on the part of the Nepalis serving in foreign armed forces and those active in the promotion of Nepali Literature to help the deprived children in the capital. “We would like to give continuity to activities like this and serve the deprived children on a long-term basis,” he said.

Dr Shuddh Rauniyar, president of the CFP, said over 125 children were being provided with morning and evening meals everyday with the help of the donations of various individuals and organisations. Besides foodstuffs, children seeking shelter at CFP are also educated, given relevant skills and involved in various vocations that will help them develop their personalities.
