Set up your JustGiving page

Like all charities, we have been severely affected by the economic downturn and logistical implications the pandemic has brought. Donations to the Trust have reduced and our staff in Nepal have had to pause projects across the country. Crucially we are still able to deliver vital financial and medical support to our most vulnerable veterans and widows – but we need your support. For 200 years they fought for us, now we fight for them.
