Didibahini Samaj Victoria (DBSV) would like to “Thank You” all our well-wishers, supporters, guests, media representatives, motivational speakers, photographers, community members and hardworking volunteers who physically and morally supported our
on Saturday, 25 May 2019 and made it a huge success. We were overwhelmed to see the valued presence of our community members. It was an example of love, care and support towards DBSV.
This volunteer’s appreciation program was organised in National Volunteer Week and was aimed to felicitate volunteers and recognise their contribution and ongoing support to DBSV in the past and in the years to come! The volunteers were presented with token of love and certificate by members of DBSV advisory committee. President Jamuna Parajuli shed light on the significance of candle and twigs of gum tree wishing that the relationship between DBSV and our volunteers would brighten and always remain evergreen.
Many new and talented MC confidently hosted the program, which included mindfulness meditation by Steve Brown and talk on men’s health and well being by John Odgers from Beyond Blue. Badri Panta presented the results of family violence survey undertaken by DBSV last year. One of the volunteers, Drona Panta also shared his experience of supporting and volunteering for DBSV programs. Through the unique concept of “Didi Bahini for Daju Bhai”, we were able to highlight the importance of equality and giving respect for each other. Most importantly, this program was able to initiate conversation on men’s health and well being.
During the program, president Parajuli invited attendees to run for Melbourne Marathon 2020, which was received with great enthusiasm and overwhelming participation. In addition, Nepalese teams were formed for different regions of Melbourne during the program, and many attendees voluntarily expressed interest to be team leaders for their region. Finally, the program concluded with chief guest Hon. Consul General of Nepal to Victoria, Chandra Yonzon commending DBSV on the successful program. The program also included three-course dinner prepared by DBSV members on site.
We wish all the best to the Nepalese team formed for Melbourne marathon 2020.
