Nepal Seattle Society and WPPC Nepal Foundation organized a Meet and Greet Event with 2010 CNN Hero of the Year Ms. Anuradha Koirala at the Everest Kitchen, Shoreline, WA on January 20, 2012.
At the event, Ms. Anuradha Koirala informed about the condition and her experiences about human trafficking in Nepal. NSS President, Mr. Sampurna Prajapati presented a Toke of Appreciation on behalf of Nepalese community in Seattle and friends of WPPC Nepal Foundation to Ms. Koirala for her selfless act against human trafficking in Nepal.
During the event, NSS and WPPC Nepal Founation also collected $792 donation for the Maiti Nepal. NSS Executive Team decided to donate $250 for Maiti Nepal on top of the collected donation.
The main event, An Evening with 2010 CNN Hero of the Year, Ms. Anuradha Koirala, which was scheduled to take place at Fr. Thomas F. Healy, S.J. Chapel and Theater had to be canceled due to the adverse weather and road condition.
NSS would like to thank all the donors and the Everest Kitchen for providing us a venue to organized this program. Also, we would like to extend our gratitude to all the community members and businesses, who extend their hands to support our event.
This was an unofficial program put together by NSS and WPPC Nepal Foundation to honor Ms. Koirala during her visit in Seattle. Since Ms. Koirala had a busy and short scheduel in Seattle, we were not able to reschedule a public event for her.
