An appeal in aid of International Nepal Fellowship will be broadcast in the UK on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday 3 February.
The presenter of the appeal is Anne Wafula Strike (Paralympic wheelchair racer, author and sporting ambassador). Anne is passionate about INF’s work.
Funds raised from this appeal will provide life-changing wheelchairs to children living with cerebral palsy in Nepal. Children with cerebral palsy in Nepal are often very isolated. The wheelchairs will help children to be more independent and fully part of family and community life.
Anne suffered paralysis at two years old, and had to wait 27 years for her first wheelchair. It is her hope that children living with cerebral palsy in Nepal do not have to wait as long as she did for a wheelchair.
If you are in the UK, please do tune in to the broadcast: Sunday 3 February on BBC Radio 4 (92-95 FM, 103-105 FM, online) at 7.55am and 9.26pm.
If you are outside of the UK, you can listen to the appeal after Sunday via the BBC Radio 4 Appeal web page.

You can also hear Anne speak of her admiration for the work of INF, and why she is presenting the appeal.
