Sabina has just passed the Secondary School Education Exam with a grade B. This is fantastic news, well done Sabina we are all very proud of you.
To everyone who has so generously donated to help build the Health and Birthing Centre in Baiteshwor Nepal - see the progress, and thank you!
The walls and roof are built. When complete 12,000 people will have for the first time access to medical and birthing facilities near where they live. Without your help, this would not have been possible. Thank you all so much.
A huge thank you to all those who have helped achieve TNT’s June ’22 Jubilee Challenge! We've done it - our total is 5088.5miles. We have walked/jogged/cycled the 70 mils for every year of the Queen’s 70 year reign, throughout the month of June, that is 4,900 miles plus – AMAZING!
Funds raised will help save lives in Nepal through bringing safe birthing and health facilities to 12,000 people in Marbu, Baiteshwor, a rural region of Nepal without maternity facilities.
For more information or to donate see: https://thenestlingtrust.enthuse.com/cf/tnt-jubilee-challenge
This is why so many people have joined the Challenge and put so much effort into Walking, Cycling or Jogging the 5088.5 miles in June.
We thank you so much!
the TNT Team and our Fantastic supporters are Tramping the Tracks and Riding the Trails - here's the reason ...........
Team TNT members and supporters have gone 'above and beyond' this week, despite some members being knocked out by Covid, an amazing 3515 miles have been covered.
So that brings us to the year 2002 and incredibly the Queen's Golden Jubilee! So street parties up and down the country as people celebrate (then as now!)
So the film of the year - The Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers and of course the haunting music of Howard Shore.
Spiderman also hit the screens to the delight of children everywhere.
Rod Stewart headlined at Glastonbury along with Stereophonics. Fifa World Cup was won by Brazil, and `the Golf Masters was won by Tiger woods for the 3rd time!
So now for the final push - we still have 1,470 miles to go to complete the Challenge! Could you join in to help complete the last lap - help us make these miles count by getting some sponsored miles this week or simply donating on our website to help save miles in Nepal - thank you so much!
Two very special friends from the South Island NZ are spending their holiday cycling round and round Rarotonga Island to help reach our target mileage of 70 miles for every year of the Queen's reign. Last week they managed 192 miles to help save lives in Nepal - fantastic!
This week a great 1,743 miles covered so far by the TNT Team and supporters which brings us to the year 1977! The major event of this year was the Queens Silver Jubilee. Quite a coincidence that TNT's Jubilee Challenge should bring us to this date at the end of the second week. James Callaghan was Prime minister and Elvis Presley died. Rock band Queen's power ballad "We Are the Champions" was released.
We are Walking/Cycling/Jogging 4,900 miles, 70 miles for every year of the Queen's reign to save lives in Nepal. Do come and join us - we have many miles still to go!
On Saturday 11th June '22 Andrew and Jordi threw open the gates of their magnificent gardens and welcomed over 500 people who came to enjoy the most beautiful surroundings. It was an idyllic, sunny summers day, the air filled with the scent of flowers, and a brass band playing near the lake as dragon flies danced across the water.
As well as the most interesting artisan stalls there were fun activities for the children, and the opportunity to dress up in costumes befitting the 15th century manor house, for photographs.
The Nestling Trust is delighted and honoured that Andrew and Jordi have generously chosen to support our Charity's work as well as that of the NGS Charities, with this event.
It was a very successful day with a considerable amount raised for NGS charities, the raffle for Ukraine raised £1000 and £3500 for Nestling Trust. We thank Andrew and Jordi most sincerely. We would also like to thank our many supporters who came along to help with various activities on the day - we are extremely grateful.

In the new Health and Birthing Centre in Baiteshwor - due to be completed this June, £225 pays the salary of one nurse for one month. Baitshwor is a mountainous remote area where approximately 12,000 people will benefit from this medical facility.
Previously women had to trek many miles across mountain tracks to the nearest birth centre, sometimes arriving too late. Fear of getting Covid in local towns has also meant that many women give birth in their villages, in unhygienic conditions. Most village homes are without running water, many have earth flooring, and most, have no heating.
Funded by TNT and local government, the new Health Centre will be within easy reach of the Baiteswor population and, as well as providing antenatal, postnatal and birthing facilities, it will provide general health care and health education for villagers.
£450 Salary for two nurses for one month
£250 Delivery bed
£100 Medicine cupboard
£75 Oxygen cylinder
£50 Privacy screens
£20 Therma gun thermometer
£10 Sterile suture and dressing packs
Fantastic news, the mOm incubator has been granted the CE mark! The Nestling Trust is proud to be associated with the mOm team, and we look forward to helping facilitate a pilot programme in Nepal.
Well done to everyone involved with the development of this amazing incubator that has the potential for saving the lives of countless newborn babies worldwide.
The Quiz Night on Friday 29th April '22 was a great success. All tickets were sold and the community Hall in Market Lavington was abuzz with people enjoying a fun evening. It was the idea of Elliot Gaiger who wanted to do something to help the Nestling Trust's work in Nepal. Elliot is 14 years old and with just a very small amount of help from his Grandad arranged the Quiz which has raised just over £2000. It is a fantastic amount and will be used to help equip and establish the Health and Birthing Centre in Baiteshwor, now under construction. Thank you so much to Elliot for his hard work and compassion, and thank you to all our supporters who are so generous, we are most grateful.
Samiksha is 10 yers old and had lost several members of her family to Covid including her brother, aunt and grandmother. Her mother, Laxmi was gravely ill with a heart condition and needed an operation to save her life. Samiksha's father was poor and had no money so he sold his land where he grew vegetables, and neighbours contributed what they could afford. Still there was not enough rupees to pay for the operation and Samiksha was unconsolable knowing how ill her mother was and that without the operation she would die. The Nestling Trust heard of the situation and how many local people had each given money while so poor themselves and stepped in to try to ensure the story has a happy ending.
Laxmi had the operation, following which, she was in intensive care for a worrying few days. TNT are delighted to say that she has now made a full recovery and is reunited with her daughter at home again.
Do come and join us!

This happy little boy is Krishna, now 9 years old, celebrating Tihar Festival with his friends at SERC School, Nepal. Six years ago he was unable to speak, stand or move his arms or hands. Rescued by the Nestling Trust (TNT) two weeks before the Nepal earthquake, he has been cared for at SERC School for children with special needs, receiving daily physiotherapy and speech therapy. He now can run, play and communicate in simple sentences and is independent in all activities of daily living.
TNT wishes to thank all physios and staff for their care, skills, and compassion. We also thank all those who have donated to the Nestling Trust making it possible for us to support Krishna
May the Festival of Lights flood the world's darkest corners, bringing peace, harmony, and happiness. The Nestling Trust wishes all family, friends, colleagues and supporters around the world a very Happy Tihar.
When hope was fading and fear rising, nurses have been able to continue providing medical care to families living in the remote village areas of Dolakha, Nepal.
Since the start of the pandemic, thanks to the generosity of our supporters, TNT has provided support and essential medical equipment, including oxygen and PPE, as well as soap and handwashing supplies to the 5 Health Clinics it established together with Sitara and HDS - Nepal, in Bhirkot, Lapilang, Marbu, Chilankha and Melung. Each clinic in partnership with the Ministry of Health serves approximately 6000 people.
Nurses have continued with their routine work - wound care, antenatal and postnatal care, child immunisation and acute and chronic illness management etc. while working tirelessly to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus as well as caring for those affected.
TNT pays tribute to the dedication and efforts of these nurses who with liitle concern for their own safetey, have put the needs of others first.
It has been fantastic to receive the news that each Health Post is now providing Coronavirus vaccine to the villagers in their areas.
As we hear of this vital work being undertaken TNT is deeply grateful to all who have supported our Health Initiative projects over the past 7 years, without your help none of this would have been possible - thank you.
