August: Our month in pictures
Healthcare in the hilltops
We provide an international standard of healthcare and medication to Gurkha veterans and their families living in Nepal.
Our doctors and nurses have been travelling via 4×4, motorbike and on foot to reach Gurkha pensioners who live in the most remote corners of the mountainous country. Often they can be on the road for many days at a time.
Visiting Gurkha veterans and widows at home
It’s not just our doctors and nurses who have been venturing across Nepal. Our welfare staff have been travelling alongside them delivering a package of care to Gurkha veterans and widows to ensure they can live with dignity.
Reaching the bravest of the brave
Despite the hazardous conditions, we have been doing whatever it takes to reach those who need us the most.
A fun day out of the Residential Home
Gurkha veterans and widows from one of our Residential Homes in Nepal spent a day making memories at a local fun park this month.
Changing lives with clean water
Villagers, often women and children, walk and queue for hours to collect water from potentially dangerous sources. By providing easy access to clean water, we reduce the burden on women and children, who traditionally spend hours collecting water each day.
