Shivangi’s Night for Charity 2015
"Shivangi's Night for Charity", held on 20th March 2015, was a fund raiser event organized in the memory of our beloved sister Shivangi, to help raise funds for children battling cancer at the oncology department of Kanti Children's Hospital, Maharajgunj.
The event consisted of musical performances from Kutumba, Manoj KC, Rohit John Chhetri, Jyovan Bhuju, Ashesh Rai, and James & Band. The event was a huge success with collection of more than NPR 500,000. The money raised from the event was utilized to fund cancer treatment of four children admitted in Kanti Hospital.
Shivangi lost her life to cancer when she was twenty-one. She dreamt that after her recovery, she would help young and underprivileged Nepali children suffering from cancer to receive medical and emotional support that they require. To make Shivangi’s dream come true, Kalyani in collaboration with Rose Foundation Nepal, organized this fund raiser to help four children, Sabin, Rohan, Sanjeeta and Sumitra fight cancer.
Our chairperson used to say, “Money should not decide whether a child lives or not”. This pushed our whole team towards turning this event into such a huge success. Sabin, one of the four Childrenn diagnosed with blood cancer, is now free from cancer and is currently living a happy and cancer-free life.
