The Poor Fund seeks to help many hundreds of Nepalis with conditions such as bone infections, heart conditions, spinal cord injuries, eye problems and cerebral palsy who cannot afford to pay for their medical treatment.
Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.
This section of Luke chapter five, is the story of a sick man healed by Jesus. To even reach Jesus, it took four faithful friends who lent a helping hand carrying him to the house and lowering him through the roof to where Jesus was. Because of their compassion and dedication, the man was able to experience the grace of God and be healed, giving him new life.
In the same way, the Poor Fund lends a helping hand to those in need. Each patient is grateful for the support of the Poor Fund, which allows them to access much needed treatment.
The Poor Fund provides full payment of, or subsidised expenses, including medicines, other treatment, transport, assistive devices and additional support costs such as food and accommodation.
