EIGHT BEDS IN A COUNTRY OF 30 MILLION
Twenty years ago four friends had a vision to provide palliative care for terminally ill patients in Nepal and they built an eight-bed hospice in Kathmandu. This is how Hospice Nepal started. The need for palliative care has grown over those twenty years but the vision remains the same, to ensure that everyone in the country, whether in rural or urban settings, has access to the care and expertise to allow the last phase of life to be lived well, with suffering reduced and dignity maintained. Hospice Nepal works closely with government and non-government organisations across the country to help make this vision a reality.
EXPANDED PALLIATIVE CARE IN NEPAL
A new facility for Hospice Nepal in Kathmandu will provide expanded bed capacity (20-24 beds). It will also have children's palliative care and be a base for rural and urban community outreach.
It will become a centre of educational excellence for the country and for the region. Land has been purchased and plans are being drawn up for the construction and fit out of the new Hospice.
HOW WE USE YOUR FUNDS
All donations will be used to build a new Hospice Nepal and help establish its associated programmes such as children’s palliative care, rural and community care, medical education and the implementation of the National Plan for Palliative Care.
This is a Rotary led project supported by an international team with a strong medical background from across the globe.
Right now Project Hospice Nepal has fundraised enough for the land purchase but now we urgently need your help to source £1 million for the construction of the building and a further £300,000 for the fit out.
