INF Australia

Motivated by our faith in Jesus, and open to all, INF has partnered with Australians for more than 65 years to help bring about life in all its fullness for Nepal’s poorest and most disadvantaged communities.

INF Australia Speakers

Inspiring INF speakers are available to speak and preach or to run a transformational simulation game for your group, school or church.

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:

  • Work on construction of 91 houses & 3 schools which are earthquake-resilient & disability-accessible
  • Improve income & health for over 20,000 people through self-help groups
  • Provide food, shelter and medical support to 14,000 people affected by large-scale flooding
  • Provide clinical support for over 3,200 patients with leprosy, spinal cord injuries & other disabilities
  • Support 5 expatriate individuals & families who provide training and support in education, health & financial management
