Key Projects and Needs
We see these projects as important in providing support and care that makes a real difference in people’s lives and Nepali society.
Bajura is one of the remote mountainous districts in the western part of the country. The district is ecologically sensitive to climate change. A majority of the farmers rely on rainfall to grow crops, and the district suffers from extreme weather conditions. This project seeks to improve adaptive capacity of the rural poor in this area to engage in agriculture-based livelihoods to cope with climate variability and change.
The Care for Cure project supports people with leprosy. Every year more than 3,000 people in Nepal are diagnosed with leprosy. Many more will remain undiagnosed due to stigma, fear, and lack of medical expertise. While for many, it is about battling the unknown.
For over 65 years Green Pastures Hospital (GPH) in Pokhara has been providing treatment and care for people living with leprosy. The work at GPH also includes treatment and rehabilitation for people living with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities and extends to reconstructive surgery, palliative care and specialist ear care.
