INF in Nepal
INF is an international and interdenominational family of Christian organisations that have been serving some of the poorest people and communities in Nepal for 65 years.
INF Nepal [INF/N]
INF Nepal [INF/N] is our main implementing organisation, working across the poorer western half of Nepal. INF/N’s clinical team run three hospitals that provide high-quality care for people with stigmatising disabilities including leprosy, obstetric fistula, cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury. In addition to first class medical care, our holistic approach supports patients pastorally, socially and economically. We have a dedicated community disability team that supports people with disability to live dignified and fulfilled lives in their communities. We have ambitious plans to develop our three hospitals as national centres of excellence in disability care.
INF/N’s community development team empowers poor communities to envision a better future and to work together to tackle the roots and symptoms of poverty. Our dedicated field staff live among the people they serve for five years, building trust, respect and a detailed understanding of the local context. Our approach is based on helping local people to identify and use their own assets and skills rather than becoming dependent on outsiders. Common activities include installing clean drinking water systems, improved sanitation, adult literacy, improving local health posts, co-operative savings schemes, mother and child health, improved farming and building skills for local advocacy.
INF/N also has a dedicated disaster response and resilience team that enables us to respond rapidly to disasters but which also helps communities to develop resilience to these disasters.
INF/N has a staff of around 300 Nepalis and 15 western volunteer technical advisors.
