Nurse’s art expo for charity of aged patients


KATHMANDU — Rachana Maskey is a nurse by profession and has already accomplished the identity of an artist.

She is a nurse at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH). However, her work does not stop there just providing medical care to patients. Following her heart, she has put her creations on an exhibition for the charity of the aged patients above 75 admitted to the hospital.

Opening the solo art exhibition, Nepali Congress leader Prakash Man Singh said the older citizens are ‘treasures’ of the nation, applauding artist Maskey for doing something noble for the cause of the elderly.

The former Deputy Prime Minister insisted that the government should announce a special package to address problems facing the aged citizens in receiving medical care.

Institute of Medicine (IoM) Dean Jagdish Prasad Agrawal, applauding the artist for doing something from her individual level to financially support the aged patients, said the hospital was holding discussions with bodies concerned to build a separate ward for elders.

The exhibition is supported by the Lokkirti Senior Citizens Foundation.

The event exhibiting 32 drawings by Maskey will run until September 15. RSS
