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 Swinging 60's and 70's returned last night at a Nestling Trust fundraising evening, as Bruce Hopkins delighted an audience with favourite songs of the era. The Nestling Trust would like to thank Bruce, and everyone who came, and helped to make the evening such a success!
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.

After 3 months in hospital undergoing corrective foot surgery to enable her to walk, Shrijana is today returning to her village where she will be under the care of local health post staff until she returns to hospital in 6weeks time for follow up treatment.
Our grateful thanks go to Dr Govinda KC, staff at Kathmandu Teaching Hospital, Shrijana's cousin who has provided personal care, Himshikhara, our our partner NGO through whom TNT is able to work and Bijendra Aryal, TNT director, who for the past 3 months has supported Shrijana in the absence of her family, giving his valuable time to ensure that prescribed medications and nutritious food has been available. Unlike the UK NHS, in Nepal hospitals rely upon family members to provide this.
Shrijana is now able to look forward to a life free from disability and pain - thank you to everyone involved, especially our loyal supporters who have made this possible.

For two days prior to the 'Impact Marathon' Tarjan, with fellow athletes, will be helping rebuild a school in an area badly hit by the earthquake.
