During the cold weather, many people, particularly school children, workers and aged people in Tarai region of Nepal are affected with cold wave badly. Research mentions that number of patients suffers from the cold related diseases such as pneumonia, respiratory problems and common cold during this time. In addition to it, every year, due to cold wave, some people die too.
In this background, with the humanitarian perspective, YAN in close partnership with National Youth Council (NYC) and various social organizations collected the warm clothes from 17-21 January 2018 in Kathmandu Valley and provided to NYC for distributing to cold wave affected people. Later on, NYC distributed all the collected warm clothes to affected people. Around 10 young people from YAN have engaged in this relief program voluntarily.
