 March 29, 2008: Fundraiser for Marbin Shrestha

As you may already know, Marbin Shrestha has been in and out of Children's Hospital for months. Initial diagnosis determined that a liver transplant was necessary. His liver improved, but other complications have developed. His white blood-cell count is decreasing and he needs bone-marrow transplant. He is going to the hospital every week for various procedures and treatments. Marbin is the son of Madan and Bandana Shrestha, former Vice President and current Executive member of Nepal Seattle Society respectively.

NSS is organizing a fund raise to show our support as a community and help this young man (by the way he just had his 4th birthday on Nov 25th, 07). During this difficult time, let us come together for Marbin and his family. Your help and concern will go long ways to show them that they are not alone during this difficult time.

Event: A Fundraiser for Marbin Shrestha
When: Saturday, March 29 at 2:00pm - 4:30pm
Where: The Everest Kitchen, Lake City Way NE

We have setup a link in our website for "Help Marbin Fund". We will periodically update the donation list. If you would like to send your contribution now, you can mail a check payable to Nepal Seattle Society. Please add memo "Marbin Shrestha".

 June 12, 2006: Fundraiser for Pranav Dhakal, Olathe, Kansas

Pranav Dhakal was admitted to Overland Park Hospital in Kansas City to get treated for a rare infection. As of now, his condition is very CRITICAL. The infection has spread throughout his body including his heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. His brain has suffered a condition called sinus thrombosis. Doctors say that it is difficult to cure this condition when only a minimal dose of antibiotics can be administered to him in order to prevent further damage to his kidneys. For detailed information, please visit this link: http://www.nepalisite.com/pranav/.

Nepal Seattle Society(NSS) received an official request from one of our online supporter Mr. Nischal Shrestha (Nepalisite.com) and the friends of Pranav Dhakal to help/support for Mr. Dhakal. We asked our members and friends to help raise funds for Mr. Dhakal's treatments. Within the month of May 2006, we raised a total of $575.00 and sent it to Mr. Pranav Dhakal in care of Mr. Amar Bajracharya, 13920 W. 143rd Ct., Olathe, KS 66062.

NSS thanks all of our members/friends for your generous support and a huge thank you to Mr. Nishchal Shrestha and the friends of Pranav Dhakal who organized this fundraiser. Community service like this is a great example of how we can make a difference in someone's life during difficult times.

 December 13-31, 2005: Fundraiser for Arbind Bhattarai, Houston, Texas

Arbind Bhattarai moved to Houston about two years ago from Pennsylvania. He is currently pursuing his studies at Houston Community College. He is a 22-year-old young man from Kalanki in Kathmandu, Nepal. Unfortunately for Arbind, his family, and all of us, he has recently been diagnosed with a serious case of Lymphoma Cancer. He is presently hospitalized at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston. Naturally, his treatment will be expensive.  The Nepalese Association of Houston (NAH) has set up the ?Help Arbind Fund? to help offset the cost of his treatment.

We (NSS) received an official request from NAH to help/support for Mr. Bhattarai. We asked our members and friends to help raise funds for Mr. Bhattarai's treatments. Between Dec.13-31, 2005, we raised a total of $575.00 and sent it to Mr. Arbind Bhattarai in care of NAH.

NSS thanks all of our contributors for your generous support and a huge thank you to NAH who organized this fundraiser "Help Arbind Fund."  We still request all of our member/friends to contribute any amount for this noble cause. Let's all give our love and support to Mr. Arbind Bhattarai during his hardship. Community service like this is a great example of how we can make a difference in someone's life during difficult times.

 November 7, 2004: Funds Raised for Mr. Ram Bahadur Malla

The Board of Directors, Executive Committee Members, General Members and friends of Nepal Seattle Society were all concerned and saddened to hear that one of our members, Mr. Ram Bahadur Malla, was hospitalized in serious condition.
He is suffering from a liver disease. He needed some funds to cover his hospital bills and medical care so most of our members and friends were generous to help him and his family at his time of need. NSS also organized a fundraiser for him and collected $1455. NSS added $500 totaling the amount to $1955.

We handed over the amount of $1955 (One thousand nine hundred fifty five and 00/100) to Mr. Ram Bahadur Malla at The Everest Kitchen on November 7, 2004 in the presence of NSS President, Members and Mrs. Shobha Malla (wife of Mr. Ram Malla). We would like to thank all of our members and friends for their generous contribution. This is an excellent example of "SERVING OUR COMMUNITY BY HELPING EACH OTHER".
