The Carolina Asian American Chamber of Commerce awarded Kamal Dhimal with a letter of appreciation during the Charlotte Dragon Boat Festival earlier this week.
The Chamber named Dhimal as Asian Refugee Community Leader “for representing special immigrants communities by advocating for their growth and development needs”.
Kamal is coordinator of Shree Harisang Kritan Mandali, a Hindus religious group that has been promoting various activities in Charlotte. The group has successfully organized two Puranas and is said to be planning to establish its own Hindu center in near future.
Dhimal was resettled from Goldhap refugee camp.
