‘Sweater Distribution Day’ in Simikot

Last year the Nepal Trust received a valuable donation from Rotary Club of Old Meldrum in the form of top quality sweaters, which were kindly brought to Nepal by the Rotary club of Elgin who participated in our ‘Trek to Build’ program in Gorkha district to inspect a water supply project.

Last month the sweaters were transported to Nepalgunj by bus and flown in by plane to Simikot. In Simikot the Trust organized a ‘Sweater Distribution Day’ for the poorer Dalit children in the area. The local kids came by the dozens to our guest house where they received new clothes to keep them warm in the colder Winter months.
