(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) A welfare fund for expatriate workers' families will be the top agenda at Non-Resident Nepali Association's (NRNA) regional meeting in #Bahrain which will take place on May 9 and 10.

DB Chettri, president of NRNA in Oman, who will participate in the meeting said, ''Delegates from at least 20 Middle East countries including GCC will discuss issues concerning Nepali workers.

''The issue concerning setting up a welfare fund tops the agenda.''

Chettri added, ''We want the #Nepal government to set up the fund at the earliest so that financial support is provided to family members of those expatriate workers who either die or are redered handicapped.

''We also plan to raise the issue of reserving jobs in Nepal's public sector for family members of these workers.''

He said that it's the responsibility of Nepal's government to support families of such workers.

''Remittances from Nepali workers comprise 25 per cent of the country's GDP today.''

The meeting will also discuss issues like depression among workers and how this leads to suicidal tendencies.

''Another important issue that will be discussed is drinking habits among workers. Many who suffer from depression take to drinking.

''This is an important issue and is part of the meeting's agenda,'' Chettri said.
