There were over 300 people who came to receive the meals. The volunteers then proceeded to provide drinking water and tents to the victims in Kittipur and Khokhana.
“Japakaw Village in Lalitpur City is an affected area which is far from help. People in this area have been suffering from lack of shelters, food, drinking water and medicine.” Venerable Thavorn revealed.

The team from the Dhammakaya foundation taking part in this Relief mission comprises teaching monks and volunteers from Thai and Nepal who participated in the 1,112 Monk Mass Ordination in the Buddha’s Land of Birth Program held on November 12nd, 2011.
