Location: Ganesh Himal area in remote hilly region of Nepal
Date: 2001 ongoing
Partners: Hilly Region Development Club
Objective: To support the operation of a remote health clinic that services approximately 6000 people in the remote hilly region of Nepal, from the villages of Tawal, Kutal, Salleri, and Dhusini.
A simple saline drip can be a lifesaving measure
Outcomes: Since constructing and fitting out the health clinic, NAFA has supported the operation of the clinic by providing a yearly subsidy towards the salaries of the health workers employed at the clinic.
Details: The health clinic provides primary health care to Tawal and nearby villages. The closest health clinic before the clinic at Tawal was built is nearly two days walk away. NAFA has supported the clinic over the years by providing extra training in mid-wifery and through the purchase of medical equipment and supplies.
Appeal: Although NAFA has some generous individuals supporting this project, further donations are needed to ensure future sustainability.
