Sunday 24 February saw a first for INF – a fundraising event held within Nepal, at the Royal Nepal Golf Club, Kathmandu.
Keen golfers and INF supporters from the UK, Brian and Anne Connelly organised the golfing competition, which was won by Major Ganaga Bahadur Gurung.
Businesses and golf clubs in UK and Nepal donated great raffle prizes, including an 18th hole flag from the world famous St Andrew’s golf course, Scotland.
Of the funds raised by the event, 75% were given to INF’s TB work in Nepalgunj, with the remainder going towards the development of young golfers in Nepal.
INF’s Programmes Director Dr. Prem Subedi and Banke Programme Manager Mukunda Adhikari gave a brief introduction to INF and the difference being made in the Mid-Western region through INF’s TB control work.
The event was also attended by Dixon J. Perera, Counsellor, Embassy of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.
INF would like to say a really big thank you to Bryan and Anne for all their hard work in organising the golf day, those who sponsored the event, and also to the Royal Nepal Golf Club who generously waived the cost for the venue, as a donation to the cause.
