NepaliTravellers and Hostel Nextdoor, with a team of 5 members left from Kathmandu on January 7 to Hapani, an up north village of Chitwan district, Icchyakamana VDC, Ward no. 2 to distribute 71 sacks full of warm clothes. The collection and sorting done over a period of 2 weeks was for the Chepang community residing in Hapani, 2, Icchyakamana, Chitwan.
We were elated to have 4 volunteers join us from SVSI - Sapana Village Social Impact. We are grateful to Mr. Pancha Chepang, Ward Chair of Ichhyakamana, 2 for supporting us logistically on the ground and would like to thank the local residents for being our added support system to bring this year's Winter Clothing Drive to a conclusion.
A beautiful family of Mr. Tek Bahadur Chepang hosted us at Hapani and we truly enjoyed and cherish the moments spent with them.
Below are some of the images we managed to gather as we left for the Clothing Drive. We promise to keep you updated and share with you our experiences on the ground in the coming days.
We are truly grateful that we got an opportunity to start 2021 with so much warmth that ALL OF YOU shared with us. Thank you to each one of you who joined hands with us! =)
