Bhutanese Community in The Netherlands (BCN) has successfully distributed the relief supplies and cash to the families of fire victims of Bhutanese Refugee Camp at Beldangi in Jhapa Nepal on 14 May 2020.
BCN has been pained to see that fellow Bhutanese Refugees in Beldangi camp have to lose everything due to fire incident of 29 april 2020 and that also during the terrible period of COVID-19 lockdown in Nepal. Thus it has urgently felt that during such period it is the resettled community’s responsibilities to help them to rescue those unfortunate fire victims from the ensuing miseries.
Thus towards that vision, BCN urgently launched a fund raising campaign on 30 April 2020 and appealed everyone through its facebook page and other mediums for possible financial contributions for which the deadline was 5 May 2020 by midnight. The fund raising campaign was successfully concluded on 5 May 2020 and could collect 1154 euros from the following personalities and organisation based in The Netherlands.
