Save Dolma Campaign

Maiti Nepal organised a Press Conference to hand over the funds collected by the ‘Save Dolma Campaign’.

Dolma Sherpa, a Nepali domestic help was accused of murdering her Filipino colleague while her employers were on the holy pilgrimage of Hajj, and was sentenced to death by the Kuwaiti court in 2008.

Maiti Nepal campaigned to save Dolma’s life and started ‘Save Dolma Campaign’ to bring Dolma Sherpa back to Nepal and for her rehabilitation upon return. The “Save Dolma campaign” managed to raise enough funds to pay for the blood money, lawyer and other fees. The remaining amount was handed over to Dolma Sherpa today.
