About Our Clinic


Nepal Thalassaemia Blood Transfusion Clinic




 Nestled 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.  
Its a 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.  




The clinic is bright, clean and even fun according to the children !!!    We currently 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.   The 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. 

On my return to Nepal this year I hardly recognised some of our children ... they were all grown up and so healthy ... some barely recognisable!!  









If you would like to know more or to make a donation please contact me and I will be happy to talk to you.  

Thank you all for reading my news and for all your support ... with out people like you there would be no clinic and no hope ....

with love
