- We are excited to say The Nestling Trust has been selected to to participate in the 2019 BigGive Christmas Challenge. The BigGive is the largest matchfunding platform in the UK.
Our project this year is the The Preeti birthing and health centre project will bring maternity services, health care and health education to very isolated village communities (30,000 people) in Preeti and surrounding villages in the Ramechap region of rural Nepal.
For the first time poor and disadvantaged families will be able to access local safe and hygienic birthing facilities, ante and post-natal care, and general health care - including immunisation, wound care, treatment of acute illnesses, and contraception
Health education, vital in reducing neonatal death rate and preventable illness, will be a key element of the project. Local nursing auxiliaries will be trained to work in the community and schools. The new facilities will be built in partnership with local non-governmental organisations and in line with Nepalese Ministry of Health requirements.
This year our Big Give target, to complete the first stage of the project, is £20,000
Donations to our project will be matched for 7 days from 12 noon on Tuesday 3rd December '19, to midday on Monday 10th December '19.
Please add a note to your diary - we need your help to make this project happen!
So ….. One donation, twice the impact!
A donation of £5 will be doubled to £10 and could buy a stethoscope and blood pressure monitor. Give £10 and it will be doubled to £20 to provide a drip stand, a fully stocked first aid bag, or a stretcher. £30 when doubled would cover the salary of a trained nurse for a month. With £100, doubled to £200, the trust could pay for the nurse for over 3 months
Watch this space for more information and links to make donations.

We are asking businesses/companies/organisations to help us establish another clinic in the remote village of Melung.
The Big Give's Christmas Challenge helps UK-registered charities like the Nestling Trust, raise funds for their cause.
Matched funding comes from a mix of champions, (philanthropists sourced by the Big Give), and pledges from supporters. This means that public donations made during the Christmas campaign will be doubled or possibly tripled!
Since the Big Give was launched in 2008 the Christmas Challenge has raised over £90 million for thousands of Charities. For more information go to www.theBigGive.org.uk.
Dolakha is a mountainous region of Nepal where remote villages were devastated by the earthquake in 2015. Thousands of people live in villages where there is no healthcare at all, and people have to carry patients on their backs, trekking for many hours or days to reach medical care.
TNT has already successfully established four clinics in collaboration with the Ministry of Health in Dolakha, serving altogether over 20,000 people.
Now please help us to do more - Melung village also in Dolakha has a population of 4573 people. They need access to antenatal and postnatal care, immunisation programmes, chronic and acute illness and disease management, wound management, family planning etc and health education. We can do this, together we can do this!

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

It was the perfect English summer afternoon. Our special thanks to Vanessa and Darell Reburn who welcomed the young and not so young, to come to their beautiful garden in Little Cheverell.

Tea, juice and homemade cakes made it a family afternoon everyone enjoyed, and the Nestling Trust would like to thank everyone who helped in any way. Our thanks also to all those who gave donations for clinic equipment and to help further our work in Nepal.

Mark and Nancy Reilly are going to walk the El Camino de San Diego de Compostella.
They will start on April 7th at St Jean Pied de Port (the traditional starting point) and finish by June 7, 2017 at the Church of St. James of Compostela.
The distance is 750.5 kilometers/488 miles.
Mark and Nancy are doing this to raise money for The Nestling Trust, the charity co-founded by their friend of many years, Sue Hamblin.
The main project of the Nestling Trust is to build a group home (not an orphanage) for 20 children in Sarangkot, Nepal.
This home is going to provide protection and hope to destitute and abused children in a country where human trafficking is rife.
Just $5 (£4.00) would be enough to buy 1 blanket for a child's bed.
Mark and Nancy hope to raise £1000.
What a superstar! The most gruelling marathon imaginable - high altitude and Himalayan terrain, yet Tarjan stormed through in under 5 hours! The Nestling Trust salutes his determination and courage.
Tarjan's great effort is directed at raising funds to help the Nestling Trust's work in Nepal. We are deeply grateful to him and to all those who have so generously donated - thank you so much. To date Tarjan has raised £1469.00 but his BT My Donate page remains open until 27th May '17 should anyone still like to contribute. https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/tarjansubba1
Bijen and Sue were lucky enough to congratulate Tarjan at the finishing line - Bijen feels inspired to take part in next years Nepal Marathon! Anyone else out there who would like to join him?
Over hundred people came to enjoy a fun evening. Our sincere thanks go to Mike Gaiger who did a sterling job as Quiz master, all those who helped with the catering and to everyone who came to support the event.
The evening raised over £1000 to help further the work of the Nestling Trust - thank you all so much.
Tarjan Subba takes on the challenge - The power of running can change lives!
This is no ordinary marathon, it's set amidst the mountains of Nepal.
A supreme effort by Tarjan, running on behalf of The Nestling Trust, to raise funds to build a home for destitute and trafficked children.
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.
Please support Tarjun in his fantastic bid to help provide shelter for Nepal's most vulnerable children, every penny donated goes directly to the Nestling Trust's project in Nepal, nothing is used for personal expenses.
Thank you Tarjun from the Nestling Trust, we think you are amazing!
and thank you to everyone who helps by making a donation, we are most grateful.
A night to remember! Sincere thanks to Fred Kerley and Potterne Cricket Club for their generous support of the Nestling Trust's work in Nepal. Special thanks also to Kevin Gover who produced a quiz everyone enjoyed. The evening raised £700, a great result.
