Maiti Nepal offers to help Hatkhola flood victim Sah’s three daughters

Biratnagar, August 24 

Maiti Nepal, a well-known social organisation working against trafficking of girls and women for flesh trade, has shown interest in looking after the three daughters of Dilip Sah from Hatkhola in Biratnagar Metropolitan City, Morang. Sah’s family had been displaced in recent floods that hit several parts of the Tarai region.

The poverty-stricken family is sheltering on the banks of the Singhiya River. The death of his ailing wife Mamata a few days ago added to their misery with Sah left alone to care for the couple’s five children, including a one-and-a-half-month old son.

A news article was published about the hapless family’s situation in today’s edition of THT, following which a team from Maiti Nepal, Morang, reached out to the hard pressed family today.

The team offered to look after Sah’s three daughters Kajal,11, Sanhaja, 8, and Kali, 5, said Binod Pokharel, Morang branch coordinator of Maiti Nepal.

Sah, who is in mourning after his wife’s death, said he would talk about the matter after the mourning period got over.

Meanwhile, Bal Helpline, Morang has provided clothes and food to the four children.
