Summary

In Nepal medical care and rehabilitation come with a price tag which many cannot afford. Roads to Rehab Nepal works with an organisation called NHEDF to support, fund and facilitate free surgery, medical and nursing care, physiotherapy and rehabilitation services for people who have experienced life changing illness or injury and cannot access medical care due to poverty. Between us we change the lives of people referred to NHEDF's Shelter who have no one else to turn to and nowhere else to go.

Challenge

Medical care is not free in Nepal. Most of our patients come from remote regions where access to services we take for granted is limited due to poverty, lack of facilities and insufficient funding. Our patients have to travel to seek medical care and are usually in desperate circumstances. They are often illiterate, uneducated and vulnerable to exploitation. They are often in debt as a result of medical expenses incurred before coming to the Shelter and are unable to work due to their disability

Solution

We support our project partner, NHEDF in running a Shelter. This provides a safe place for patients to stay whilst appropriate medical treatment is found. As patient advocates, NHEDF navigates the complexities of the medical system. Accommodation, food, medical, surgical and nursing care, rehabilitation and skills training, where appropriate is free. We work together to change the lives of patients and enable them to travel down their often lengthy, complex, challenging road to rehabilitation.

Long-Term Impact

Many patients would simply die if it were not for NHEDF. They are often depressed, even suicidal and would sink deeper into debt and poverty without their support. This project improves physical and emotional health and maximizes independence. It helps to alleviate poverty by providing skills training and income generation to patients who cannot return to their pre-disability employment. Patients are also sometimes referred to other organisations for support in areas that we cannot help with.
