Liverpool Nepali Society in UK has collected a total of £19,000 to help children who are suffering from cancer and seeking treatment at Kanti Children’s Hospital in Kathmandu.
The organization handed over the amount to ‘So The Child May Live’, a charity that also works with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Charity to help to improve the care for children with cancer at Kanti Children’s Hospital.
Members of Liverpool Nepali Society, UK had initially collected £8,000 by organizing cultural events in Liverpool in November last year.
Upon learning about the fundraising campaign, the mayor of Liverpool also donated an additional £3,000 to the Society.
On behalf of the Liverpool Nepali Society, UK, Chairperson Deuman Ijam, vice-chair Naresh Bista, Secretary Shivaraj Pant, Treasurer Hariram Aryal, advisors duo Dr Shambhu Acharya and Bhakta Gurung had visited the Liverpool Mayor Office last week as part of their fundraising campaign.
Moreover, the British government has also pledged to provide another £8,000 to support help improve the care for children with cancer at Kanti Children’s Hospital through the ‘So The Child May Live’.
Members of the ‘So The Child May Live’ are all set to visit Nepal later this month to join hands with “World Child Cancer’, another renowned charity.
As part of the campaign entitled “Close the Cancer Gap”, the children with cancer of all seven provinces will be extended various supports.
