Princess Diana, on the fourth day of her visit to Nepal, Friday dedicated a Red Cross community development project building in Panauti and then toured a village school and a new drinking water system installed by the Red Cross. Later that day, in the capital Katmandu, she received a courtesy call from Nepalese Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala at the British Embassy.
Meanwhile, Diana’s efforts to dispel myths about leprosy haven’t gone unnoticed. While visiting a hospital Thursday, she made a point of shaking hands with lepers. One enthusiastic Nepalese compared the popular princess to the Hindu goddess Durga, protector of the weak.
