Ottawa, Canada – 19 April 2006: As you know Kathmandu Model Hospital has set up a Jan Andolan (popular movement) Primary Health Treatment Fund for the treatment of the injured in the popular movement. Inspired by its appeal to contribute Canada Forum for Nepal took an initiative in collecting donations in Ottawa. The response from the Nepalese community in Ottawa was overwhelming. In a matter of 4 hours over the phone, we were able to raise Canadian $2,833 (Nepalese rupees 179,131 – one hundred seventy nine thousand one hundred and thirty one). In opening your heart for the cause of humanitarian treatment for injured people in Nepal, you have surpassed our expectation. Canada Forum for Nepal salutes for your generosity.
The money has been already transferred to the Fund in Nepal. The copies of the cheque written to the Fund, receipt from the Fund and the effective exchange rate are posted below and hard copies are available on request.
