I dag starter Dashain, den viktigste festivalen i Nepal. Den symboliserer gode krefters seier over ondskap. Dette budskapet kommer fra Dr. Biraj Karmacharya ved vår samarbeidspartner, Dhulikhel Hospital:
«Dashain Greetings to all, but most importantly to the FRONT-LINERS!!
This has been a strange year – full of fear, uncertainty and confusions. Despite all, what fills our heart with joy is that all of us never hesitated to come to the front to serve others in things within and sometimes beyond our capacity. We have tolerated hardships and financial compromises but never gave up an inch to support others. May this Dashain strengthen our faith and dedication for humanity and may we all continue to work together like a family as we have done till now. Together, we shall emerge victorious!!
Stay and celebrate safe. The greatest gift you might give to your elders this Dashain would be a socially distanced celebration. It might well be a gift of life to them.»
