A blanket distribution program was held in Baramchi, Sindhupalchok, one of the worst-hit districts by the April earthquake, on Friday, bringing joy to the survivors living under harsh winter conditions.
The Dalit community of that area were provided blankets on the occasion.
Program co-ordinator Mohan Prasad Gyawali informed that out of targeted 60 households, 48 households were from Dalit community.
“The quake victims felt a deep sense of relief after receiving the blanket. Although the distribution was fewer in quantity, it meant a lot to them,” added Gyawali.
