17 September 2018, Biruwa, Kavre district, Nepal: Rev. Joseph Soren from Nepal Evangelical Lutheran Church blesses the food before the meal starts. What may appear an ordinary lunch is in fact quite special. As Dalits find themselves among the most marginalized in Nepal society, members of other castes will often not receive food from them even if offered. Today, however, a range of visitors, including local authority officials sit and eat with them, to affirm the equality and dignity of all people, no matter their ethnic group, economic situation, or caste. The Lutheran World Federation World Service programme runs a Post-Earthquake Rehabilitation and Livelihood Recovery Project, in which Biruwa is one of the supported communities.
