Local hero



For the many disabled, poor and abandoned people in the city, Basu KC, 76, is the only hope. KC, the first person to set up a readymade garment factory in Nepal, has long been active in social service. He has donated millions of rupees worth of money, food, and clothing to flood victims. Every day he scans the newspaper pages to find people who are in need of financial assistance to pay their medical bills. KC earns some one hundred thousand rupees from rent every month, all of which he spends on his social work.

KC has raised two orphan children as his own and has also been paying for the education of several other children. He has also been providing financial assistance of Rs 10,000 per month to the family of Bal Bahadur Pariyar in Parbat to treat their six disabled children. KC says he has no idea how much money he has spent on social work so far. "Everyone has to die some day. I think it is our duty to help the needy," he says.
