Free Health Camp and more:

On 27 March Samantha and Alex will travel to Nepal. We have planned a number of projects, including a ‘Free Health Camp’ in the Nuwakot district. Together with several doctors, nurses and pharmacists we will travel in 4×4 jeeps to the village of Newarpani, where residents from the whole area can come for a free health check. We hope to reach and help more than 150 people.

We also want to distribute sports articles to various schools and we will visit the children’s home Hopeful Home in Jhaukel.

Volunteer Bert in Hopeful Home:

Bert spent six weeks in the children’s home Hopeful Home and did a fantastic job. He played football with the boys, cooked for the children and arranged several outings, one of them was a visit to the zoo in Patan, which was an unforgettable experience for all.

Bert also arranged new tarpaulin to be installed on the kitchen floor and purchased cushions for the library. To top it off, he arranged a painting workshop for all children, organized by the Museum of Nepali Art. Afterwards, the artwork was discussed by a true artist and the children were allowed to take their canvas home. Watch here a short video with the highlights of Bert’s stay at the children’s home:
