KATHMANDU, Nepal-Eighteen orphans of Bal Mandir made their dream flight to Mt Everest at the initiation of Yeti Airlines as a part to mark National Children’s Day on Saturday.
In a bid to take the children out of the limited four walls of Bal Mandir, the event was organized.
On being top of the world, children shared their wonderful experiences. Suraj Joshi, one of the 18 children onboard the flight, said he aim to become a pilot one day and fly to Everest every day.
The orphans said they had never imagined that they would get an opportunity to fly in a plane in their life and expressed gratitude to Yeti Airlines. They further said that their dreams were materalized.
Veteran comedian Hari Bansha Acharya had accompanied the kids and said he was happy to be on the Everest flight along with the kids.
“We could see Everest very clearly. I had never been on a mountain flight before and I am glad that I had my first experience with these wonderful kids,” quoted kantipur as his saying.
In the meantime, Tulsi Narayan Shrestha, vice-president of Bal Mandir, said such initiatives would boost other corporate houses and the government to understand their obligation towards the children and the society they live in.
