We organised a fundraising dinner on 6 August 2016. As always, we were humbled by the turnout of our supporters.You all made this event another of our successful fundraising events.
The event was attended by personalities from various walk of life who found a common theme to celebrate - "Helping build better Nepal". We are thankful to our Hon. Consul for Nepal - Mr Fred Brown for addressing our supporters and also reading out an encouraging message from Embassy of Nepal in Canberra supporting our effort in helping out lives in Nepal. Special thanks to Dr. Hilary Wallace for being our Speaker for the night and shedding some light on the importance of Play Therapy for special children in Nepal. Thanks to Dr. Alex Zahnd for Skype session from Switzerland and speaking about RIDS-Nepal and Family of Four project. All proceeds from the event will go towards this project in Humla and Jumla region.
We were able to raise just over $3000 for our Family of 4 project. A total of AUD $4000 was handed out to RIDS-Nepal to implement holistic community development project. You can still donate for the project.
