CWA treated to taste of Nepal

June 24, 2017

Murray Hut CWA Branch recently held its International Night with the country of study this year being Nepal.

Members hosted Dan Ryan who has undertaken volunteer work in Nepal and two Nepalese mothers and babies who are living and working in Finley.

Dan was accompanied by his mother, Mary-Anne.

Members cooked a fantastic array of Nepalese style food to taste while Dan gave a short talk about Nepal and his volunteer work which the ladies found very interesting.

The Nepalese guests provided a unique insight into life in Nepal, and the babies were delightful.

Everyone enjoyed the food and warm friendship during the evening.
