Little Doctors provide Bedrock for Good Health in Humla

Dear Friends and Supports,

The Little Doctor's Programme goes from strength to strength in the Hidden Himalayas.

One of the earliest WASH projects started by the Nepal Trust, the Little Doctor's Programme, equips young children with the knowledge and importance of personal hygiene, such as hand washing and good oral health.  Additionally they learn basics about nutrition and diet, first aid and wound care, diseases and sanitation. The children are then encouraged to share their knowledge with their family; siblings and parents, with the aim of increasing awareness, improving health and combating diseases, while at the same time helping to eradicate extreme poverty and helping reduce child mortality.

The programme gives children a sense of accomplishment and they are awarded with a doctor's white coat and a certificate on completion.  A tangible reminder of their achievement and something to be proud of.  This early education will serve the children and their families well and help to improve their personal hygiene and overall health.

We run four courses a year and are almost fully funded for 2023: again, a big, big thank you to all our donors and supporters. This is a fantastic achievement and has made a real impact on improving the quality of life of those living in the Hidden Himalayas of the Humla District, of Nepal. 

As a key component of our next 5 Year Plan, to be agreed with the Nepalese Government, we are already planning ahead and identifying a follow-up project and working in partnership with our delivery partners SHIP-Nepal and the District Health Team, who are delivering healthcare across the 8 health posts constructed and supplied by the Nepal Trust. 

Thank you for all your help and support; we hope you can continue to support our work and spread the news to all your friends and colleagues. Once we have raised sufficient funds to cover the scheduled courses for 2023 any further donations received will be ring-fenced for the 2024 programme.

Every penny you donate will go to help the people of Humla, in adapting to modern-day life.

Namaste.
