The president of NGO Avyaan Mr Krishna Chettri was also present.

''It was an honour to work with Harimaya charitable organization who provided with free medical equipments, medicines and all their support. The doctors  assigned were very supportive, cooperative and deligient in their work,'' says 3rd year B.Com student Miss Riya Pradhan.

''The faculty and students of B.Com along with NSS did a good job and helped with most of the task done today. The programme was held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m,'' said Head of B.Com department Mr Uday Mall.

''It gives me an immense pleasure to announce that today's program was a grand success in which nearly 270 people turned up. It feels good that we as a Salesian Family were able to help those that needed most,'' says NSS Cordinator Mr Diwes Pakhrin planning to offer more opportunities to help the people.
