KATHMANDU, Jan 20: With the objective of raising funds for Dr Tara Bahadhur Khatri Cancer Relief Trust, Presidential Social Service Club of Presidential Business School is organizing a documentary show at the event GOAL 2 – ‘Give One A Life’. The documentary, ‘The Day My God Died’, deals with the subject of violence against women and will be screened at Rastriya Naach Ghar in Jamal, Kathmandu on January 27.
Directed by Andrew Levine, the 2003 documentary is narrated by actors Tim Robbins and Winona Ryder, and also features Anuradha Koirala.
Through the Dr Tara Bahadhur Khatri Cancer Trust, the patients in Bir Hospital Cancer Department receive medicines and supplies each month. The press release states that the reason behind choosing to help the Trust is because “it does not have a good financial status and the trust is somehow run by the family members and some relatives of late Dr Tara Bahadur Khatri.”
The other objective of the event is to raise awareness of the subject matter of the documentary.
“This is a fundraising program with a dual effect. We also hope to spread some social awareness regarding violence against women through the event,” said Sanjay Adhikari, executive member of the club and event manager of the program.
Comprising of students of Presidential Business School, the club takes students outside of the college and textbook knowledge and encourages them to involve in social activities.
Starting at 10:30 in the morning, the event will last for an hour and is priced at Rs 200.
