About Our Clinic
Thalassaemia Blood Transfusion Clinic
in a little back street of bustling
Katmandu is a small oasis !!! Its our beautiful blood transfusion clinic that
cares for over 100 children with bone marrow cancer.
small but incredibly functional clinic that has changed the lives of every child
we care for and given hope to families who before had nothing but the imminent
premature death of their child on their minds.
clinic is bright, clean and even fun according to the children !!!
give fortnightly life saving transfusions to every child who come for FREE ....
there is no charge for any one who walks in ... there is no NHS in Nepal and
most people die due to lack funds to buy medicine.
Nepal is the poorest country in Asia and and
healthcare is a luxury most cant afford.
clinic has been running for almost 5 years ... every single penny comes from my
friends , family and other people who just hear the story and want to make a
difference ... somehow we just seem to manage to keep it going!
We have a
small committee ... most are volunteers but all either have Thalassaemia or
have a member of their
family suffering from Thalassaemia .... no money for administration is required as we all work together for
free from the love of our hearts.... it truly is an oasis in a place where life
is hard and good things just don't happen that often.
A child suffering from Thalassaemia cannot survive very long without regular treatment and prior to our
clinic most would be dead by the age of 5 or 6.
return to Nepal this year I hardly recognised some of our children ... they were
all grown up and so healthy ... some barely recognisable!!
would like to know more or to make a donation please contact me and I
will be happy to talk to you.
all for reading my news and for all your support ... with out people like you
there would be no clinic and no hope ....
