On 17-19th of February, there was a visit by two representatives from Nepal Red Cross Society: Bal Krishna Sedai, Deputy director of Junior/Youth department and Bhuwan Paudel, President of Syanja district chapter. The main purpose of their visit to Steinkjer was to meet us, the delegates from Nepal to know how the exchange is going so far and to meet with our colleagues in district office to get to know each other, to exchange experiences and the work in both national societies.
We welcomed the representatives from our national society at Trondheim airport on Saturday morning and catched a train back to Steinkjer. They were very tired due to a very long journey, so they took rest for some time and then we showed them Steinkjer city & went to shopping mall together with them. After that we prepared Nepali food and ate dinner with them at our apartment. On Sunday, we went for sightseeing around Steinkjer and we also visited Egge gåurd with them. It is the place nearby Steinkjer city which carries Viking history. On that evening, we had an activity with volunteers of Steinkjer Red Cross youth group called ‘Ungdomscafe with taco night’ so we took our representatives to that activity where they got chance to meet with youth volunteers and to know more about Red Cross youth activities in Norway.
On Monday 19th February, we had a meeting with the representatives and our colleagues in district office where they introduced with each other and shared their works and experiences. Henry, one of our colleague showed a short video about Red Cross activities in Nord-Trondelag throughout a year which he prepares every year. Then, we ate typical Norwegian lunch in the district office together with our representatives and our colleagues. After lunch, we had a meeting with them and our local contact person, and we shared our work so far, cooperation with each other, our achievements and our plans ahead. We travelled to Trondheim airport together with them and they travelled back to Oslo.
On that evening, we also held a session about Nepal, Nepal Red Cross Society, YDEP and our work as youth delegates with members and volunteers of Stjørdal Rotary Club and Stjørdal Red Cross.
