The Angel of Nepal
Kathmandu, July 8. Through no fault of our own, our beautiful Nepal is being ravaged by a 2nd wave of Covid-19. Some say it is only a matter of time before the 3rd wave is here. Nepalis all around the world despair to see what has happened to the motherland. Some of our oversea brethren sent more than their prayer with small donations. Retired Ex-Gurkha Corporal and movie star Raj Kumar Rai did something more.
In May 2021, the Corporal reached out to his old comrade Mr. Sean Hotung and discussed how Nepal could be helped. What happened in the next 45 days is astonishing. 450 40L Oxygen cylinders were delivered to Kathmandu by 20th June and distributed to Bagmati, Karnali, Kailali and Sudurpaschim regions.
More amazing, was what Mr. Hotung and his wife, Mary Jean, accomplished next. In the same 45 days, Mary Jean, a famous celebrity in Macao and Hong Kong, called on all her fans to help. On 9th July, a Cathay Pacific air cargo, paid for by Sean Hotung, carried an aid package valued at 4. 55 million HK dollars of medical supplies donated by Mary Jean’s fans. Sean Hotung, as Patron of the Hong Kong Ex-Serviceman Association, asked the Hong Kong veterans to help package more then 350 cartons of supplies. And then, Mary Jean and her husband added 50 lifesaving 10LPM Oxygen Concentrators and 8,000 Antigen Testers Kits to this cargo.
Like an Angel, Mary Jean and her husband came to Nepal’s aid in her greatest hour of need.
Having done more than their share, we have now heard Mr. and Mrs. Hotung are preparing another cargo for Nepal!
