The Nestling Trust through SITARA, our partner NGO, has contributed to life saving surgery for Ram Thapi, a 15 year old boy from Dolakha, whose brother tragically died a year ago. Ram has been in hospital for 8 months. He requires a bone marrow transplant and undergoes surgery today. We hope and pray that all goes well for Ram, and wish him a speedy recovery.
Himshikhara, our partner NGO, is organising tailor made 'Treks with Purpose' through the magnificent mountains of Nepal, passing through picturesque Nepalese villages and culminating in watching the sunrise over the Himalayan mountain peaks. For those who wish, there is an option to spend three days taking part in a community volunteer project such as helping paint a rebuilt school classroom, connecting water pipes or creating a play area for children etc. The treks will help fund the running costs of Sarangkot Children's Home for needy and trafficked children. A reasonable, general level of fitness is all that is required.

Great to meet members of the Nepali Association of Oregon, with John and Dan of Stone Circle Cider, this afternoon. Plans were discussed to hold a fundraising event this summer to help fund the Preeti Health and Birthing Centre Project. This is really exciting! The project when complete will bring medical care and health education to thousands living in a remote mountainous area of Nepal where currently there are no medical facilities.
The Nestling Trust are most grateful to Stone Circle Cider for all their help and support, and also to the Nepali Association of Oregon for their valuable assistance not only with this event, but also for helping to promote the 'Treks with Purpose'.
Burns Night - and what a great night it was! The Nestling Trust welcomed guests with sprays of heather, then 'Ode to the Haggis' with the traditional piping in of the Haggis delighted everyone who then enjoyed the 'tatties, haggis and neeps'! Pipley Ceilldh Band were amazing and dancers thronged onto the floor to dance the night away. The Nestling Trust would like to thank everyone who helped to make it such a fantastic night including all who came to support the event. Nearly £2000 was raised - an amazing result!
We would especially like to thank Fiddington Nurseries who again supplied all the shrubs and trees making the Community Hall particularly beautiful for the event.
Proceeds will help fund the building of a Health and Birthing Centre in Preeti, Nepal, where thousands are without medical facilities in an area which is cut off by snow and ice and landslides during the winter and monsoon seasons. here to edit.
