“Let the Charity Begin at Home”, a charity that began for Elderly Home. It was a successfully organized, day long Clothes distribution Program in the premises of Pashupati Bridhaashram.
WNSO-Nepal, a volunteer based organization working in the field of Youth education development and nation building process, it was a small effort from the WNSO executive members. The Program objective was to cater the needy elderly person to relief them from the chilling cold and of course the Social Service which is purely altruistic and sacred from every perspectives.
The charity was being raised by the Staffs of D2hawkeyeServices showing their genuine interest and generosity towards the Elder citizens by contributing their reusable clothes as well as fund. The required Funds and clothes were also collected from Kathmandu School of Law, Law Students society (LSS) and all the well wisher friends, member and volunteers from WNSO-Nepal. Approximately, five (5) sacks of reusable clothes were collected above organization and individual person.
The Cloth Distribution started at around 12:15 pm, Padma Devi Ghimire, eldest resident of same Ashram of age 100 years and 5 months old was honored as a chief guest for the Entire session of the program. The program formally started with offering Shawl to the chief guest for the program. In the program all together 235 Shawl was distributed among the elderly resident of the Ashram .The atmosphere was joyful as luckily we got the sunshine throughout the program.
Dr. Sunil Kumar Joshi president of WNSO-Nepal highlighted the importance of Youth Role in Transformation of society and country to Nation building through the social service and synchronized effort of the organization like us. He formally addressed the media and journalists, the various guest and the public over there.
Similarly, Program Coordinators, LunaG and SitaP, represented D2HawkeyeServices, Mr. SanjeevS from KSL and YadavB highlighted that Elders must not be ignored from the society , if ignored it will not create the social justice and which will again hampers the development of the nation like us.
In the Program, WNSO-Nepal organized a discussion series with Office Chief of BridhaAshram Mr. Basudev Deuja , he provided the relevant information that government only is not capable to address such issues so we need a common understanding and joint work effort from the governmental and non-governmental side too . He provided facts about the woes and worries of the Bridha (Elderly). He also shared how Pashupati BridhaAsram is able to cope with the Prospects, challenges and various legal and social issues which impacts a lot in the elderly day to day life. After a very intense discussion we came into conclusion that “Elderly are like other dignified citizen who are the citizen of the nation and must not be ignored at all”.
In the Program Special thanks goes to the volunteers who throughout the program assisted in the Program. Closing Session was announced by distributing Snacks to the Elderly. We would like to thank all well wisher who directly and indirectly supported the program and also special thanks to media personnel for taking their time to cover our event despite their hectic schedule.

Why everybody go to Pashupati only? Is it only elderly home in whole Nepal or at least Kathmandu? I haven’t heard anybody going elsewhere to distribute things, I will also choose pashupati if i needed to 😀
“You instead wasted that money on those people who can do nothing for the country in future.”
Ok, let’s spray bullet over all of them, shall we?
Whine whine and whine – you DID this.. but have you DONE that? What a whiner!
It is really nice to know that you are concerned about the Children since you are associated to Unicef. And if you have really researched about the organization, it basically targets to provide scholarships to poor and deserving students within the country and Abroad as well.
As for me, I have been providing few of my savings to educate a girl child from Kaski, Pokhara. Now, she is quite a grown up and preparing for S.L.C. Not only that, I have even voluntarily taught to school children for abt 3 mths. I am hopeful that this girl gets a High School Education and be an Independent Citizen.
Of course, Elders needs care they shouldn\’t be treated like animals just because they are near to death. How can one be so sure that NGOs, really go to them and know their well being?
What ur group did is great but as a person in unicef \I hate to say: protect children first. Children should get academic materials, chance to study and grow. Invest in those.
Not on those Old People who get care from numerous NGOs to wait for their Death at the place you mentioned.
Have you givenve created a fund for children? for poor children in hospitals? Have you given children a pencil? a playing material?
You instead wasted that money on those people who can do nothing for the country in future.
Have you ever created a fund for ailing children in hospitals, clinics?
Scared of getting old, somehow!
