COVID-19 and economic uncertainty have left Gurkha veterans and their families more vulnerable than ever before.
Will you support them with a gift to our Remembrance Appeal today?
The power of the pension.
The Welfare Pension and our package of Financial Aid is a lifeline for thousands of Gurkha veterans, their widows, and families.
Widow Sukla Pun was already finding it hard to survive when her only son, and the person who supported her, died in 2015. Then, the following year, her house was severely damaged by subsidence. Thankfully, we were able to help her with a Hardship Grant. Not only did we repair and secure her home, but we also changed the roof, which was leaking and repaired the cracks in the walls. Sukla also receives the Welfare Pension which is her lifeline:
“It is everything to me. Especially after my son died. My grandchildren also depend on it. I cannot imagine how my family would survive without it.”
