Situation

A permanent home is needed in order to provide the stable and caring environment which these children, with severe physical deformities and from extremely poor rural communities, need in order that corrective surgery, physiotherapy and rehabilitation can be effectively provided during their formative childhood years. There is a great deal of prejudice in Nepal about disability and we believe that the combination of a caring home, proper schooling and corrective surgery can enable our children to lead a productive and fulfilling life otherwise denied to them when they grow up The purpose-built home is costing £265k, of which more than £210k has been raised, and as it is schduled to open in April 2010, there is a urgent need for the final funding. A further £30k will ideally be raised for new equipment for the new home,e.g. beds, furniture, desks, study lighting and physio equipment, but otherwise old and cobbled together furniture will have to be transferred from their present premises to make do.
