Thank you very much Andrea Matthews, who held a 'Table Top' sale in her village of Langstone on Bank Holiday Monday and raised a brilliant £232.75 for our projects in Nepal. Andrea has been a staunch supporter of CHANCE since the beginning and a dear friend. In 2007 she was part of the ...team, medical checks for children, which I organised in the hills over Pokahra. 🙏❤️

CHANCE first visited the newly built Health Post in in the remote area Dhubichour in 2016 with Sangbo Lobsang (GMIN), one of our long standing partners on the ground in Nepal. For the first four years we funded a doctor, nurse and the medicines. In 2017 after a fund raising event we funded the ...construction of a further Health Post in Purandhara, both Health Posts are in the Dang region. We funded a nurse and the running costs for three years at the second Centre. Both have been incrediably valuable to the local communities, each helping around 2,500 families per year. Besides paying the salary of the nurse in Dhubichour we continue to provide medicines for both Health Posts. Thank you to our wonderful supporters of Chance, you make vital projects like this possible which continue to serve the communities. 🙏

I couldn't resist sharing these delightful videos of children in the kindergarten and class 1 at Triple Gem School in Kathmandu as they learn the art of dance. The two little girls dancing together is a gem! CHANCE for Nepal has been supporting this school for the past 15 years. We have ...students receiving educational sponsorship and provide a daily cup of warm milk to the lower school. 😍🙏. Have your sound up

Ruksana suffered between 10-15%, 2nd degree burns to her chest, tummy, back and neck. She underwent a debridement and a skin graft. Her mother had gone to a jewellery shop to order an ornament, and had Ruksana in her arms when she was speaking with the shop owner. Ruksana suddenly grabbed a bottle of liquid off the counter and the chemical inside spilt over her body. She was rushed by ambulance to Dharan Koirala Hospital where she stayed for two days, due to the lack of burns facilities she had to make the arduous journey by public bus - 375km, to the Kanti Children’s Hospital.

Her grandmother called the parents and poured cold water over the area. She suffered 8% 2nd degree burns, and is still undergoing treatment.

One cannot imagine the struggle for those children and their parents who live vast distances from the capital at times like this. Having to go by public bus to get the best treatment as in two of the cases above, and only babies , would have taken many hours.

All names changed for protection and parents gave their permission.

Each year CHANCE donates £1,000 to BVS for emergency care, this is sometimes used to help parents return back to their village. Or it may be used to provide medicines for parents who cannot afford to pay.

Our fifth year of supporting 1200 anti rabies vaccinations = £1,000 with the brilliant organisation Sneha's Care which was established in 2014 by Sneha Shrestha to protect street and community dogs from torture and cruelty.

Each year in Nepal, approximately 16,000 people are treated ...for dog bites and up to 200 die an excruciatingly painful death from rabies, most of them children, with up to 500 animal deaths. Vaccinating dogs is the most cost- effective strategy for preventing rabies in people. Sneha is an exceptional young woman who dedicates her life to the wellbeing of animals.
