Sushil is 5years old and suffering with Leukaemia. His family had sold everything and had no money left for their son's treatment. The Nestling Trust, has ensured Sushil's treatment and medication continues. TNT wish to thank again all our wonderful supporters and their generosity.
We are asking Businesses, Companies and Organisations to help us establish another clinic In Melung, a remote village in Dolakha, Nepal, population approx 4,573, and where there is no medical care facility.
How can we reach this goal? TNT hope to raise £10,000 through the BigGive Christmas Challenge.
Go to our Fundraising Events section for more information about how pledges are matchfunded and can be doubled or even tripled through the BigGive Christmas Challenge.
Pledges need to be made by 31/08/18.
Sushil is a 5year old boy from Dolakha, his home is near to one of our clinics. He has cancer and doctors are hopeful that with continuing treatment over the next six months he could recover. Sushil has been in hospital for one month and his family who are very poor, have sold all they own to pay for his treatment.
TNT have undertaken to pay for the next three months and are now looking for sponsors to help pay the final three month costs. The costs are £220 per month. If anyone can help with this please email firstname.lastname@example.org or Telephone 07747062757
We will be most grateful for any support.
clinic at Marbu
Sita the little girl who suffered terrible burns when fire tore through her home, is recovering well. She underwent skin graft operations which have healed. She and her mother who were in hospital in Kathmandu have been moved to Chitwan which is a small town in Dolakha much closer to their village. Sita's mother is also making good progress following spinal operations on her back. She also suffered burns which are now healed. It is thought now that eventually she will be able to walk again.
Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed so generously to the cost of hospital treatment for this family.
On Saturday 7th July '18 we held a Nearly New sale in West Lavington Village Hall. The goal was to raise money to pay for hospital fees for medical treatment of a family whose home burned to the ground in the Dolakha area of Nepal, fairly close to Marbu clinic. The mother jumped with her daughter Sita, from an upstairs window to save their lives but Sita suffered 40% burns and her mother severe burns and spinal injuries. Sita's father, undergoing treatment for a brain tumour, also suffered burns. Their home, constructed following the loss of their previous home during the earthquakes, had been completed just 13 days before.
We would like to thank everyone who supported the Nearly New Sale. An amazing sum of nearly £2000 was raised which included donations. Thank you to everyone involved, those who gave items so freely, those who worked so hard in setting up and running the event, those who made cakes and served teas and coffees and of course those who came along on the day, we are most grateful to you all.
A Day to Celebrate!
Today a dream became a reality, as the Sarangkot Nestling Home was inaugurated by Na Devi Pun, Minister for Social Development Nepal. At the special ceremony Na Devi Pun was was joined by Rana Banda Thapa Ward President, Members of the Political parties, representatives from Himshikhara and Alliance Nepal and the Nestling Trust UK. For Barry and Mike, Nestling Trust's directors, it was their first visit to Nepal and they were delighted to join other members of the Nestling Trsut team, Bijen, Subash and Sue, to help celebrate this special day. Also present was Chirungebe Timulsina, an elderly farmer, who generously donated part of the land, Himshikhara, TNT's partner NGO, Alliance Nepal, local NGO and villagers, many of whom, helped in the work of construction.
The Nestling Trust is deeply grateful to the many people who have given support in so many ways, and made this day possible.
Mike and Barry TNT directors, visit Nepal for the first time and meet up with Sue, Bijen and Subash for a meeting in Kathmandu, to discuss the itinerary for the next two weeks. On the agenda will be the 'Completion Ceremony' of the Children's Home at Sarangkot, and visiting the four Health Clinics in the Dolakha region.
The Children's home at Sarangkot is almost complete, painting and finishing work is now underway with the expected completion date the end of February '18!
90 families are warmer tonight in Sarlahi, Nepal, as temperature drops below zero!
Himshikhara supported by the Nestling Trust distributed warm jackets and blankets to villagers who lost homes and belongings in the devastating floods last year. Many have been struggling to survive the extreme cold conditions with inadequate clothing.
Materials for the community to install hygienic toilet facilities, has also been supplied.
The Nestling Trust would like to thank Himshikhara for their commitment and hard work.

The Nestling Trust is delighted to learn that Poonam, a 15 year old Nepali girl, suffering from Neurocysticercosis, has been free from seizures since undergoing life saving treatment at the Apollo Hospital in Delhi early this year.
After seeking medical advice in Nepal, the Trust agreed to fund Poonam, to go to India for assessment and appropriate treatment, Neurocysticercosis is a specific form of cysticercosis which is caused by larvae of tapeworm in the brain. Cysts formed by the infection grow within the brain causing fits or epileptic seizures. Poonam's condition was deteriorating fast and her family did not have the means to help her in any way.
The Nestling Trust would like to thank all staff of the Apollo Hospital, Delhi for their care, skills and dedication in helping Poonam recover. Our thanks also to Himshikhara, our partner NGO, for the big part they played in the organisation of this project.
Poonam is now back in school and leading a normal life, we wish her well..
Landslides and heavy monsoon weather did not stop the distribution of much needed clinical equipment for the four remote clinics supported by the Nestling Trust, Marbu, Bhirkot, Lapilang and Chilankha. TNT are most grateful to SITARA Nepal (our partner NGO) for organising the trip to the Dolakha region and would like to thank them and Bijen and Subash (TNT directors) for making the long journey in extremely difficult conditions. We would also like to thank the many Nestling Trust supporters, who have made generous donations to purchase the vital equipment - thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible.
On the Children's Home land, just below the play area, 166 trees have been planted - avocado, guava, macadamia and lemon trees.
Back in October 2011 Sue first came Nepal as an IVHQ volunteer nurse - today Sue met six IVHQ volunteers who are helping with the construction of the Children's Home at Sarangkot. Thank you to all IVHQ'ers, you're doing a great job, especially under that hot summer sun, we are so grateful for all your hard work!
Shristy, Bijen and Krishna check out the progress of the Children's Home, which is still on track to be completed by the end of the year.
Mark and Nancy Reilly have reached Santiago after walking a gruelling 488 miles to raise funds to help the Nestling Trust build a home for destitute/trafficked children in Nepal. It is a fantastic effort, and they have raised more than £3565 for the Home which is now under construction at Sarangkot. We would like to express our sincere thanks to them for their time, effort and dedication, and to all who have supported them so generously, to help us reach our goal.
Mark and Nancy Reilly are walking the El Camino de San Diego de Compostella and now have just 35 miles to go!
They are doing this to raise money for The Nestling Trust, to help fund the construction of the Children's Home at Sarangkot for trafficked and destitute children - the Nestling Trust is immensely grateful for their tremendous efforts to support our work.
A sincere thank you to Vanessa and Darell Reburn who organised an afternoon of Duck Races in their beautiful garden. Families enjoyed the fun and homemade refreshments and wonderful sunshine!
Over £400 was raised in donations and the Nestling Trust would like to thank all those who helped in any way.
Shrijana Outpatient Review - - - - - -
Just one year ago the Nestling Trust found a young girl in a remote area of Nepal, unable to walk through foot and ankle deformity. After many set backs Shrijana's determination shone through and in January she finally left hospital walking with crutches. Today we received these pictures following an outpatient review - crutches, plaster and braces gone, Shrijana shows us what she has achieved, and with physiotherapy her progress will continue. We are most grateful to Bijendra Aryal who worked tirelessly, overcoming many difficulties to ensure Shrijana received the treatment and care she needed. We would also like to thank again Dr Govinda KC and staff at Kathmandu Teaching Hospital, and the remote Health Post involved, as well as our partner NGO, Himshikhara..
2 Years Ago Today a devastating earthquake hit Nepal. TNT have funded the building of 3 Clinics In Dolakha a badly affected area - they are now complete.
TNT has continued to support Marbu clinic which had also been destroyed, the nurse has been working within a corrugated iron shed. However, this is now being rebuilt by the District Health Office and is almost complete.
Equipment is now desperately needed - so much was lost, crushed under the rubble.
TNT wish to provide each clinic with necessary basic equipment and the following list includes items still to be purchased. If anyone wishes to help us we would be most grateful.
