The Intra-national Welfare and Support Foundation of the USA has drawn the attention of Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane towards the plight of the Bhutanese refugees in camps in the Jhapa and Morang districts.

A delegation led by the Secretary of the Foundation, Gopal Dhital, met Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Lamichhane on Friday and requested the Nepal government take serious note of the refugees in Nepal.

In the memorandum handed over to the Deputy Prime Minister, the Foundation has said that it is very painful to live as a refugee in the country of one's ancestors and has requested the government to take initiatives to return the Nepali-speaking Bhutanese to Bhutan with dignity or give them citizenship of Nepal or to send them to a third country for resettlement.

 The Foundation is established by Nepali-speaking Bhutanese businesspersons and philanthropists who resettled in the United States. To preserve and promote the Nepali language and culture, the Foundation has also announced two reality shows named 'Mero Voice Universe' and 'Mero Dance Universe' for Nepali speakers across the globe.
