INF Nepal

INF Nepal is a Nepali Christian non-government organisation, registered with the Nepal government's Social Welfare Council, which serves Nepali people through health and development work.

INF Nepal aims to demonstrate God's love and concern, and restore people's relationships with God, each other and creation - so they can live dignified lives to the full. INF Nepal aims to honour God by bringing sustainable improvements in health and quality of life, and peace and harmony in communities. INF Nepal's focus is on the poor and disadvantaged, including those affected by stigmatising diseases [such as leprosy, TB and HIV/AIDS], the disabled, and marginalised groups [such as women, displaced people, and those in remote areas].

INF Nepal has its Central Office in Pokhara, Nepal's second-largest city, and runs six programmes based in Nepal's Baglung, Banke, Dang, Jumla, Kapilvastu, Mugu, Pokhara and Surkhet Districts
