ICMS Faculty Pitamber Aryal Provides Winter Warmth to Isolated Communities


Dr. Pitamber Aryal helped make winter more bearable for many living in western Nepal last month, when he assisted in the distribution of 500 blankets to Karnali residents in his capacity as then-Director for Disaster Management at the Nepal Red Cross Society. The blankets were donated by Gorkha Brewery Pvt. Ltd. (GBPL) on 7 January as part of their corporate social responsibility program, "Sharing Warmth This Winter." Karnali is one of the most remote and poverty-stricken areas of Nepal, with many people lacking suitably warm clothing to cope with the extreme winter temperatures.
