Ja­panese aid to flood vic­tims

People's Review - - NEWS -

Ja­pan has pro­vided the first ship­ment of emer­gency re­lief goods for the flood vic­tims of Nepal. Ja­panese am­bas­sador to Nepal Masashi Ogawa handed over the re­lief ma­te­ri­als to Home Min­is­ter Ja­nar­dan Sharma at the Hu­man­i­tar­ian Stag­ing Area of Trib­hu­van In­ter­na­tional Air­port on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 23. The first ship­ment of emer­gency re­lief goods that ar­rived on Wed­nes­day in­cludes 3,000 blan­kets, 100 plas­tic sheets, 2,000 sleep­ing pads, 100 tents and 10 wa­ter tanks, weigh­ing al­most 10.4 tons, reads a press state­ment is­sued by Ja­pan In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion Agency (JICA). The state­ment fur­ther said that the re­lief ma­te­ri­als were sent by the Ja­panese gov­ern­ment in re­sponse to the dam­ages caused by heavy rain­fall since Au­gust 11 in the south­ern parts of Nepal. JICA said the re­lief sup­plies pro­vided are worth about NRs 23.4 mil­lion. Dur­ing the oc­ca­sion, Ogawa ex­tended his heart­felt con­do­lences to the vic­tims of the un­for­tu­nate nat­u­ral dis­as­ter and said, “The Ja­panese Gov­ern­ment and Ja­panese cit­i­zens have not for­got­ten the friend­ship and com­pas­sion given to Ja­pan dur­ing the great east Ja­pan earth­quake in March 2011 and the Ku­mamoto earth­quake in April 2016 by the gov­ern­ment and peo­ple of Nepal. Like­wise, the Ja­panese Gov­ern­ment and JICA are happy to be able to im­ple­ment emer­gency as­sis­tance ahead of other gov­ern­ments and in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions, which is an in­di­ca­tion of the cor­dial re­la­tion­ship be­tween our re­spec­tive gov­ern­ments and cit­i­zens.” The Gov­ern­ment of Ja­pan sin­cerely hopes that these goods will be de­liv­ered promptly to the vic­tims and will some­way help in im­prov­ing the lives of those af­fected and that restora­tion work will go ahead steadily in the dis­as­ter-af­fected ar­eas and the vic­tims will be able to go back to their nor­mal and peace­ful lives as quickly as pos­si­ble, reads the state­ment. Agni Group has au­tho­rized a new ser­vice cen­ter, Ut­suk Au­to­mo­biles Pvt Ltd, in Bat­tar, Nuwakot for its Mahin­dra Util­ity Ve­hi­cles. Agni Group informed that the cen­ter was jointly in­au­gu­rated by Bidur Mu­nic­i­pal­ity's mayor San­juPan­dit and Tara Ba­hadurKarki, pres­i­dent of Nuwakot Cham­ber of Com­merce on Au­gust 25. “The new ser­vice cen­ter avails out­stand­ing fa­cil­i­ties of Mahin­dra Util­ity Ve­hi­cles by of­fer­ing top- notch ser­vic­ing and gen­uine spare parts. The main aim is to in­crease the ac­cess of cus­tomers to the ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties and qual­ity ser­vices of Mahin­dra,” reads a press state­ment is­sued by the com­pany. Agni Group, the au­tho­rized dis­trib­u­tors of Mahin­dra Util­ity Ve­hi­cles, said it be­lieves the new ser­vice cen­ter will help in strength­en­ing the bond of Mahin­dra with its cus­tomers by giv­ing an ex­em­plary in­ter­na­tional brand ex­pe­ri­ence.
