Summary

In Nepal medical care comes with a price tag many cannot afford, We work with an organisation called MeRO (previously known as NHEDF) and enable access to medical care by funding and facilitating medical & surgical intervention, nursing care, physiotherapy and rehabilitation services for people who have experienced life changing illness or injury and cannot access such services due to poverty. We change the lives of people who have no one else to turn to and nowhere else to go.

Challenge

Medical care is not free in Nepal. Most of MeRO's patients come from remote regions where access to services we take for granted are limited due to poverty, lack of facilities and insufficient funding. People living in regional and remote parts of Nepal have travel long distances to seek medical care and many of MeRO's patients come part way through their medical journey. They are often illiterate, uneducated, vulnerable to exploitation and in desperate financial circumstances.

Solution

Our support enables our project partner organisation, MeRO, to operate a 20 bed medical Shelter in Kathmandu. This provides a safe place for patients to stay whilst appropriate medical treatment is found. MeRO acts as patient advocate and navigates a complex, corrupt, expensive medical system. Your support funds medical & surgical intervention, nursing care, physiotherapy and rehabilitation services and all equipment and supplies needed during a patient's often long road to rehabilitation.

Long-Term Impact

Almost 1000 patient lives have been changed so far because of what we and MeRO do. Multiply that by many times to incorporate the impact on the lives of significant family members. Patients are often critically injured or seriously unwell by the time they come to the Shelter. They are depressed, suicidal and would sink deeper into debt and poverty without our intervention. Together, we enable access to health care which improves health outcomes, maximizes independence and alleviates poverty.
