Katha Hijo Ko has released their next episode. This time, it is Bhadra Bahadur Gurung. He says he is 72 years old, and has seen much pain in his life. Dealing with the death of his wife, and disappearance of his daughter, he tells us how heart-wrenching loneliness can be. “I miss her whenever Dashain comes around. There is no life in this house. Living alone is very hard”. He seems happy to see us, and happier when we provide support to him.

Support work by Katha Hijo Ko team
Katha Hijo Ko team donated some financial support and two cartons of noodles to a 107-year-old man during their shooting. The team was a day before there to see the man and found that he loved noodles so that they took it. The elderly were seen to be very touched and grateful for the support that was provided. He was seen giving a blessing to the team as well.
While the team’s goal was to document the tales of the elders that they visit, and still are. They realize charity work was necessary for the elders. While shooting their first season in five places: Syangja, Tangting, Kristi, Pamey, and Thulikhet, the team has given some financial and other gifts help to the people that were interviewed.
Katha Hijo Ko believes that helping the elderly will give us blessings to continue with the charity and the project to be visiting in future every part of Nepal. With the upcoming season as well, the team wants to continue helping the people.
Below there are some pictures where support was given.
