KATHMANDU: Ambassador of Nepal to Japan, Madan Kumar Bhattarai, today urged all people and organisations based in Japan to hand over all donations they have so far collected in the name of earthquake victims of Nepal to the Embassy of Nepal in Tokyo and take official receipts. In a public note, Ambassador Bhattarai stated that this could better ensure both transparency and use of resources to the specific task of post-earthquake reconstruction and rehabilitations in Nepal. “Every Yen of your contributions would be meticulously utilised for the assigned tasks of reconstruction and rehabilitation and your encouraging love and support are a great source of inspiration to all those who suffered during the earthquake of April 25,” Ambassador Bhattarai mentioned in the appeal posted in his Facebook page. Stating that the revival of tourism of Nepal is critical to reenergise its economy, the Ambassador also appealed to the people of Japan to visit Nepal as tourism infrastructures including trekking routes and trails are all fine and largely unaffected by the quake. Meanwhile, the Embassy of Nepal in Tokyo today dispatched additional amount of 12.6 million Japanese Yen to the Prime Minister Disaster Relief Fund. With the fresh transfer, the mission’s total contributions to the Relief Fund so far stood a record amount of 580.73 million Yen, the Embassy said in the statement.
