Help us help the people of Nepal

Our work

We support INF Nepal’s health and community development programs among poor and marginalised communities in remote western Nepal. We also send volunteers to serve in these programs.

In the last 12 months, support from Australia to community health work, earthquake reconstruction & Green Pastures Hospital has helped INF Nepal to:

  • Treat over 36,000 patients with leprosy, spinal cord injuries and other disabilities
  • Provide 300 families with hygiene kits after a disaster
  • Improve confidence, income & health for more than 6,500 people through Self-Help Groups
  • Train 295 people with disabilities in rural communities in home-based physical therapy
  • Resource 310 women to be Human Rights Defenders in their communities
  • Support six expatriate workers and their families who provide training and support in education, health and financial management
