Health & Disability

NAFA has a strong track record in supporting Health & Disability related projects in Nepal.

NAFA has a strong track record in supporting both ongoing health and disability programs and one-off health-related projects.

Ongoing Health and Disability Programs

Our first funded project in 1991 was the funding of a remote cataract surgery eye clinic conducted by the Tilganga eye hospital in Kathmandu. NAFA has funded these clinics annually ever since.

In 2001-2, NAFA co-funded the construction of a remote health post with Ausaid in Tawal, which services 5 villages in the Gangajamuna Rural Municipality in the Dhading district. It supports the salaries of the two health workers there, including one with midwife qualifications.

NAFA also supports primary ear clinics through annual allocations to Himalayan Health and Hearing and the Nepal Association of the Hard of Hearing (NAHOH), based in Kirtipur in the Kathmandu Valley.

More recently, NAFA has taken on operational support for the Sungava Home for young women with an intellectual disability near Swayambhunath temple complex in Kathmandu.

One-off Health and Disability Projects

NAFA has supported a significant number of one-off health and disability projects, including:

  • primary ear care and treatment clinics in several districts
  • a five-year oral health program in the Gangajamuna Rural Municipality in the Dhading district
  • health clinics targeting families who work in a carpet factory in Thimi in the Kathmandu Valley
  • water infrastructure projects in several villages in eastern Nepal, in the Kathmandu Valley and in the Gangajamuna Rural Municipality in the Dhading district.
  • a range of other initiatives, sometimes in partnership with Joy Foundation Nepal
