Kathmandu Metropolitan City has provided Rs 2.5 million to the team of journalist women that is scaling Mt. Everest.
Handing over the amount to the team members, KMC Mayor Bidya Sundar Shakya expressed the belief that the scaling Mt. Everest by journalists would contribute to the public event of the KMC.
On the occasion, Chief Administrative Officer of KMC, Yadav Prasad Koirala, said that tourism potentials can be sought from own's strength.
Rojita Budhcharya (Nepal Television), Kalpana Maharjan (Megha Television), Rosha Basnet (Tastriya Samachar Samiti), Priya Laxmi Karki (News 24 Television) and freelance journalist Deurali Chamling Rai are in the team. The team is heading towards Lukla on Wednesday for the same.
They are scaling the Mt. Everest with the slogan 'Unified Voice for Equality.'
Seven out of eight local levels in Banke, the district in Province 5, do not have own ambulance service. The Narainapur rural municipality purchased an ambulance few months ago and the ambulance service is irregular here too due to lack of roads in good condition. The village people do not have easy access to better healthcare facilities.
