Our target figure was £10,200 but in fact we raised an amazing £18,118.75 during the campaign. We are overwhelmed everyone's generosity.
It means that as well as establishing a clinic at Melung, the Nestling Trust can now consider funding a further clinic in Preeti, an area of huge deprivation.
This area, high in the mountainous region of Ramechhap, has a population of 40,000 people. Many lost their homes during the earthquake and still live in corrugated iron temporary shelters. Snow falls between November and March, and the access road/tracks are cut off during monsoon time. There is no medical facility and a health clinic and birthing centre are desperately needed.
The Nestling Trust is able to help improve the health of families living in these remote villages of Nepal because of the wonderful kindness of people who encourage and support us – we are immensely grateful, thank you.
