Fairfax County Fire and Rescue team and Volunteers honored for their rescue and relief work in Nepal
Spirits were high today at the Volunteer recognition program organized by the America Nepal Helping Society (ANHS), a Manassas based local community organization. Members of the Nepali community gathered together to honor the brave volunteers from Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue who went to Nepal and performed exemplary rescue operations immediately after the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25, 2015.
ANHS has raised more than $73,000 in donations for the rescue and relief effort. This included materials and medical care to be taken to the impacted people in the far flung areas of Nepal. A small video was presented during the program to show the highlights of the work the team did while in Nepal. The team members were very emotional in presenting their eye-witnessed accounts of the level of devastation. These team members as well as other Nepali Americans who had gone to assist the relief effort were also honored during the program.
Virginia Congressman Rob Wittman, Delegate Bob Marshall and Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of Nepal, Mr. Rishi Ghimire handed out the letters of recognition to the brave volunteers.
The program began with renditions of both the American and Nepali National Anthems and observance of a moment of silence for the lives lost due to the earthquake as well as for the brave men and women from US Marine Corps who lost their lives while attempting to rescue the victims.
ANHS presented a check for $32,599.62 to Nepal’s Prime Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund.
An eight year old girl, Kajal Panthi gave a check for $170 to DCM Mr. Ghimire, as a donation to the PM Disaster Relief Fund. The third grader saved the amount from her pocket money and wanted to donate for this noble cause.
From the Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue team, Chief Chris Shiff spoke about their rescue work and all the hardships they faced. The gathered community members gave rounds of applause and expressed their honor to the Firefighters as well as the volunteers from Nepali American community.
