Impacting Lives in the Himalayas: Kiwanis Story of ASPAC Chair Sujan Shrestha

In the Himalayan foothills, where the echoes of majestic peaks meet the resilience of the human spirit, ASPAC Chair Sujan Shrestha's story serves as a testament to the far-reaching influence of the Kiwanis International IDD Project. It illustrates the profound difference that a simple initiative like salt, driven by compassion and determination, can make in the lives of those who need it most.

By providing access to iodized salt and implementing education programs, the project has not only improved the overall health and well-being of these children but has also paved the way for nurturing the future. Kiwanis International's Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) Project gives a glimmer of hope for the children living in the remote regions. Kiwanis has taken a proactive stance in addressing the critical issue of iodine deficiency, which has significant health implications for children in these far-flung areas.

Through iodized salt and education, Kiwanis International has not only eradicated iodine deficiency in the remote areas but has also sown the seeds of leadership, ensuring that children like Sujan can rise to become an inspiration in their communities and beyond.
