IMPROVING HEALTHCARE IN RURAL NEPAL

The aim of Doctors For Nepal is to improve healthcare in rural Nepal by empowering impoverished students to serve as doctors, nurses and midwives in their isolated rural communities

We provide scholarships to under-privileged medical, nursing and midwifery students, who then return to their remote communities to provide desperately needed medical care.

We desperately need your support to help us tackle the Covid disaster that is rapidly spreading across Nepal. There has been a 668% increase in cases over the last two weeks (Oxford university data tracking site) with us receiving frantic daily pleas for help from our friends and colleagues in Nepal. Dr. Kamal (one of our DFN doctors undertaking his internship in Kathmandu) says “Our Health system has collapsed… hospitals cannot take patients because we don’t have any life-saving Oxygen… we are helpless”.
