Travelling to Manma in Kalikot District

Kate, one of our trustees Dr Nat Thurtle, and one of our newly qualified Doctors for Nepal, Nahakul, have travelled out to Kalikot to visit Manma Hospital where Kate first worked as a doctor for Médecins Sans Frontières, and where some of our documentary “Namaste – a Himalayan Journey” was filmed. Here’s what Kate has to say:
“Amazing day in Kalikot. Welcomed by local media over breakfast, we met Nahakul’s beautiful family, taught at the hospital in Manma, then showed our film NAMASTE – A HIMALAYAN JOURNEY to the village. Feeling great about the future of charity: all coming together at last. Thank you to everyone for your wonderful support, not to mention Dr Lalit for project managing us from his revision in Kathmandu!”
