Nepali actress Rekha Thapa had organized a inauguration ceremony to formally announce the social work she had started recently by establishing the Rekha Thapa Foundation. In the event she told, “I have felt like a mother. Now I have realized that you don’t need to be in blood relationship to become a mother.”
In the formal event, Rekha also released a half-hour-long video showing the details of her visit to the Far Western Nepal to meet Raute community people. The website of the organization, rekhathapafoundation.org, was also launched during the event.
Rekha had adopted four Raute children and brought them with her when she returned back from the Far Western Nepal. Three girls and a boy are now living in the hostel of Anandakuti school in Swoyambhu.
Rekha Thapa first announced about the Foundation concept while she was in Hong Kong to premier her movie ‘Kali‘.
