End of the 2017-2018 academic year update

Thanks to the generous donations of our supporters, as well as our chapter members' work with on-campus campaigns, and our partnerships, we have officially met our goal of raising $8,000 this academic year to send to PHASE Nepal! This money will go towards staffing and supplying a health post in the town of Bichhaya in the Bajura district of Nepal. We are proud of having been able to meet this commitment, and are grateful to all those who supported us in doing so. Thanks to these funds,

  • 2000 Patients will be provided with primary treatment at PHASE Supported clinics
  • 25 Child births will be supported by skilled birth workers
  • 100 pregnant women will be visited at least once in PHASE supported clinics
  • 100 new born babies will get health checks by PHASE health staff
  • 110 children under 5 yrs of age will be treated by PHASE staff
  • 250 sessions of door-to-door visits will be organized to provide health education, ANC/PNC counseling and general health
  • 230 people will benefit from family planning counselling services
  • 20 Health and hygiene education sessions will be organized for school children
  • 20 Health and hygiene educaiton sessions will be organized to raise awareness of diarrhoeal diseases in the community
  • About 20 traditional healers of the community will receive PHASE training
  • About 200 Community people will be aware on social taboos such as Chaupadi etc through street drama
  • 15 School teachers and community leaders will be aware on child protection

Right now, three of our members, Luke, Anar, and Jackie, are on a GROW internship in Nepal with PHASE. GROW stands for Grassroots Onsite Work, and is a critical piece of the GlobeMed model. During their internship, they will be learning more about PHASE's work, and assisting with a research project that PHASE is in the process of conducting. They will also be discussing the details of our partnership for this coming year, and will determine which PHASE project our funding will be best used for next year.

Thank you again for all of your support. We hope that you will continue to support us and PHASE Nepal in the coming year.
