Rekha Thapa and Soch Pariwartan Nepal have started fund raising to help the family of Ganesh Bishowkarma. The 16-years-old boy went to Qatar to work and support his family. The family had raised money at 38% interest to send Ganesh to the foreign country. But, within 6months Ganesh’s dead body arrived at home.
The story made an international sensation when a British newspaper The Guardian published the story.
Rekha and Soch Pariwartan Nepal have started a bank account to collect fund to help the family of Ganesh. If you are interested in donating whatever amount you can please deposit the amount in the following bank account.
While in Qatar Rekha Thapa met the Nepali workers in trouble. She told that she couldn’t do anything much to the distressed Nepali so, she handed over all she had in her purse (about Rs. 20,000) to them hoping that might come handy.
Rekha is currently in Qatar to participate in various programs. Rekha met some ‘modern day slavery’ victims. She says, “I feel sad on the fact that the people who work 18 hours in in 50 degree Celsius, have been duped and denied their pay. They can’t even go back to Nepal.”
On September 26, Rekha participated in the inauguration of a shopping center, Grand Mart Shopping Center.
Following are a couple of photos taken in on her arrival in Qatar on September 25.
