Situation

Disability and poverty go hand in hand. In Nepal a person with a disability and their family are less likely to have access to rehabilitation, education, skills training and employment - opportunities which reduce poverty. This project will solve the problem for poor patients requiring rehabilitation following spinal injury, enabling them to return home as active members. Without this support, patients will continue to suffer from preventable complications, social exclusion and early death.

Solution

By supporting 50 financially challenged patients, it allows rehabilitation to be provided for these patients, who otherwise could not afford to pay. Specialized rehabilitation for the spinally injured enables the patients to lead full and independent lives, to improve their quality of life and to relieve the burden of care on their families.
