The Nepal Trust
Working with health, community development and hope in the ‘Hidden Himalayas’
The Nepal Trust provides basic health care and health education in Humla, the least developed area of Nepal. There are no roads or infrastructures and maternal and child mortality rates amongst the 45,000 inhabitants are some of the highest in the world. To alleviate this the Trust has opened Health Posts and built and equipped three new birthing centres, and is also involved in health education. A dedicated Service Centre is planned which will create local employment and provide renewable energy for schools, mills and public facilities.
In northern Nepal, the Nepal Trust is working on the second phase of a project to assist farmers to resume earning and hence to restore hope and ambition to those rebuilding their lives after the devastating earthquake in April 2015 destroyed homes, fields and livelihoods.
Your gifts can provide equipment to protect mothers and babies during childbirth or help farmers affected by earthquakes to restore their livelihoods.
