Various 11 women, who fasted-to-death for 12 days last month, received cash donations from their friends abroad, Thursday.
The Bhutan Media Society distributed US$ 410 collected from various 15 individuals and two organizations -Punya Foundation and Bhutanese Community in Netherlands – to the women in Beldangi-II.
The donation was mobilized to regain the lost health of women, who fasted without food and water for 12 days demanding refugee status and other aid facilities.
Meanwhile, Women Coordinator Durga Devi Bista thanked all donors for their valuable supports.
“The women will use this money for their treatment and diets,” said Bista.
