Thanks to all the support of our donors and all who attended our charity events, this year Nepal Pain Relief( NPR) will be opening its first permanent pain relief clinic. Here’s the update of our progress.
In early January of this year, Journey Pradhan, treasurer of NPR travelled to Dolakha to establish the partnership relationship between TUKI and NPR.
By March, Nepal Pain Relief formally established its new partnership with TUKI in Charikot, Dolakha and work could begin on bringing Chinese medicine to the people in need.
Dolakha was one of the areas that was most affected by the earthquake on 12 May 2015.
Many of those affected by the earthquake are still living in temporary housing. TUKI has a long history of rural development work in Dolakha since 1977 and has well-established networks communicating with the surrounding mountainous regions.
At the end of March, Lucy Dean, president of NPR and Dosan Gurung, General Secretary of NPR travelled to Dolakha to give the TUKI team an introduction on how NPR works and the techniques used by volunteers to alleviate pain. After this, a free four-day health camp clinic was run at the new clinic site in the TUKI compound to begin local outreach. With the support of the TUKI team, two volunteers, a project coordinator and an interpreter, 120 very relieved patients were treated.
Unfortunately, many were turned away due to time constraints but with the promise of returning volunteers in October!!!!!
