Our Work in Nepal

Established in 1969, we provide vital support to Gurkha veterans, their families and communities in Nepal.

We enable people to live with dignity by delivering essential financial and medical aid and work with local communities to provide access to clean water and education.

We operate through 19 Area Welfare Centres spread across traditional Gurkha recruiting areas in Nepal as well as one in India. We have around 400 staff working in the region.
