Moved by the plight of Haiti quake survivors, a non-government organisation (NGO) here is busy collecting funds to help the affected children.
“We have donated Rs 10,000 from the ‘lovers’ coffer’ as an initial amount for the noble cause,” said Abhit Pyakurel of the NGO, Lovers Association.
The effort has found support from the Kathmandu chapter of Kidzee, one of India’s largest chains of kindergarten schools, besides FM radio stations and other private associations.
Started Wednesday, people will be approached during the 10-day drive to donate for children in Haiti.
