It’s no longer just money that our pensioners need

Sargeant Buddhi Bal Gurung served with the Gurkhas for 11 years from 1941.

Our teams visit him often to pay him a Welfare Pension and to check his health.

Buddhi had to undergo emergency surgery around four years ago after breaking his leg in a fall.

After recovery, we provided Buddhi with a walking frame to enable him to move around his home and garden. Without it, he would be unable to live a life of independence and would rely entirely on his son, who lives with him.

Speaking last month, his son told our team:

“When we need help, we call The Gurkha Welfare Trust. With their help, Dad has become better. It would have been very difficult without them.”
