CHANCE for NEPAL is keen to support Mountain Heart Nepal’s brilliant work, through funding medicines for the health camps and their relief work in Bara.A medical team consisting of five people from Mountain Heart Nepal conducted health camp at the storm affected Bara on 13 April 2019. The outreach clinic was set up at Mahagadhimai Municipality-7, and Subarna Rural Municipality- 4 (Hardiya) of Bara district.

About 250 patients received free health treatment including essential hygiene and personal care products received from Direct Relief. Three-quarters of the cases seen in the camp were related to trauma inflicted by the storm. Nine patients needed a referral to higher center and therefore were transferred to Kathmandu.

The ongoing medical camp is part of Mountain Heart Nepal's attempt to restore the community's health status following the storm that occurred on 31 March 2019 destroying 2,400 homes and killing 31 people. People remained displaced in temporary shelters with the rapid risk of transmission of malaria and infectious diseases. Therefore, to avoid epidemic outbreaks and protect the safety and quality of patient care, our medical camp will remain operational every week until the first week of May. Thanks to CHANCE for Nepal (UK), for providing funds for the medicines. The women and the 80 children will go to bed better off than the night before.

Bipana is 5 years old and from Nuwakot, which is 75 Kms from Kathmandu. Bipana’s father died of TB and her mother works a small piece of land and looks after Bipana and her 3 year old brother. Their financial situation is dire.
Bipana suffered 20% second degree burns to her chest, tummy and bottom.
Her mother had put some food to cook on an open fire in their one roomed hut and went out to work in the field, leaving Bipana and her brother alone in the hut to keep warm. Bipana ran and tripped and fell into the open fire and got severely burned. On hearing screaming, a neighbour ran into the hut and saved Bipana and applied coconut oil and tomatoes onto the burn. She was rushed to a local health post and transferred to Trishuli Hospital, but after 7 days, was transferred to the burn’s unit at Kanti Children’s Hospital as her condition was not improving. Tomatoes with their high water content are sometimes used on burns if there is no running water.

Sonu, is 11 months old and lives Lalipur, 4 Kms from the Kanti Hospital.
Her parents are farmers and are both deaf and dumb, their financial situation is extremely poor. She has a 6 year old sister who is in class 1 at school.
Sonu suffered 4% burns to her neck.
Her mother was doing chores and had boiled water and put it on the floor to cool. Sonu, learning to walk and unsteady on her feet, fell and hot water went onto her neck from the water in the bowl. She is improving well.

Sujil is 6 years old and from Baglung, 283Kms from Kathmandu. His parents work the land. He has a sister aged 9. Sujil goes to school and is in lower kindergarten. (Depending on when the child starts school determines the class, so Sujil probably started school recently.)
His mother had gone to the temple and his father was working the land. Sujil and his sister were playing outside and he decided to climb a tree . There was a live wire amongst the branches which he touched and got an electric shock. He received medical treatment from a health post, but after 5 days, he was brought to the Kanti for specialised treatment. He has had one debridement and 6 dressings. He is recovering well.

Pasang is in class 2 at school and is 8 years old and comes from Butwal which lies 270Kms from Kathmandu. His father is a migrant worker and mother a housewife. He suffered 10% 1st degree burns to his left hand. He is in class 2 at school.
He came home from school, and whilst his mother went to call her husband to come and eat who was outside Pasang decided to help himself from the pan of hot oil on the stove, some of the oil spilt onto his hand. His mother put perfume onto the wound! and then ice! He was referred to a district hospital near to his home but after two days, was transferred to the burn’s unit at the Kanti Children’s Hospital.
It is important never to put ice on a burn, as stops the circulation, but to always use cold running water wherever possible. He has made a good recovery.

Thank you to our partner on the ground BVS for sharing. They deliver food hampers weekly to every child on the unit funded by CHANCE, we also fund counselling for the patients and families and physiotherapy.
All names changed for protection.

There was an article in the Kathmandu Times recently say there is a huge shortage of doctors in Nepal and named the Kanti Children’s Hospital as one of the hospitals in desperate need of doctors and nurses. The Kanti is the only National referral centre for paediatrics care in Nepal.
Quote from the Kanti:
‘Every day, around 1,000 people visit the hospital seeking treatment. Hospital sources said that there is an acute shortage of manpower and equipment to cater to the children in need of treatment.

When the Post reached out to Dr Ganesh Rai, director at Kanti Children Hospital, he appeared to be resigned to the fact that there was nothing he could do.
According to Rai, the hospital needs 39 medical officers, 160 nurses and other staff to continue its existing services. Likewise, patients visiting the hospital for ENT and orthopaedic services have been forced to seek services at private hospitals.

The hospital withdrew at least 16 ICU beds for the lack of nursing staff.
“We are also facing a shortage of X-ray films and reagents. We have dues to pay and haven’t even been able to pay salary to our staff,” said Rai.”

Other major government hospitals are the same.

While rescue efforts are gaining in pace with security personnel and battalions deployed to the affected areas for rescue and relief operations of people, it is saddening to see that animals have been left astray with thousands of animals being either dead, displaced or severely wounded.

We love supporting this programme with Shenpen, now in our third year. By having the Tiffin meal, which is sometimes the first thing the child has eaton that day, increases energy levels, thus, performance and concentration levels increase too, parents are happy, full tummy, so children are happy, win win all round.   🥰      We also have funded educational posters, puzzles, books, and water for the water tank.

This boy and the little shop he works in offers meals for 80 of the neediest students at Mitra Aadharbhut Vidhalaya.
For many of these children, this is their first meal of the day.

Thank you so much to our sponsors Chance for Nepal (UK) and Pitchouns du Monde for their commitment.

There were 22 children, mostly below 5 years of age, on the buns unit at the Kanti Children’s Hospital when Anamika went to deliver the Goody Bags which are funded by CHANCE. The ward nearly maximum capacity of 23 beds.Samira is aged 3 and comes from Terathum which is 500kms from Kathmandu and took over 12 hours to reach the hospital. She has a younger brother and lives with her parents. Her mother is staying with her in hospital. The burns to both legs are severe, 1V degree, and she will need surgery. Her mother had boiled water and put to cool on the table and Samaria pulled it over onto her leg. Here she is with one of the knitted teddies in his blue jacket.Ambika is aged 4 years old and from Jhor, on the outskirts of Kathmandu city. She lives with her parents and has 3 brothers and a sister. Her mother was preparing Pakkaudal (made from flour and vegetables) which are deep fried. Her mother had a pan of hot oil ready to fry the Pakkaudal and some of the hot oil spilt onto Ambika. She suffered 10% , 3rd degree burns to her legs.Both very tragic accidents and with the mother present at the time! Thank you for sharing Anamika.
Names changed for protection.Each year I take hundreds of the knitted comfort dolls with me to Nepal. All lovingly knitted and individual. I give Anamika a couple of hundred which are part of the goody bags, along with a toothbrush, children’s stickers, toy, Rubik cube or brick game for the older children, and soft bear for the younger ones, which she hands out on her twice monthly visits. There are many wonderful knitters who enjoy knitting these for the children on the burn’s unit. I also give them out on medical missions, in schools for the nursery classes and wherever I feel it is appropriate and can bring a smile to a child’s face. I always carry some with me in my day bag, when out and about, for whenever an opportunity arises to make a difference.The other day I met a friend, Rose, who I hadn’t seen for over a year, and she told me she was amazed when she saw a photo I had posted a few years ago, where one of the children was holding a doll that she had actually knitted and how touched she was to see this. She had the photo printed and it’s now framed in her living room, how special is that! She sent me the photo below from 5 years ago!I often wonder if my knitters do Facebook and recognize their lovingly made doll! I share the ones Rose knitted which I gave to two little girls outside their school building.Thank you so much to all the knitters who knit for CHANCE, you are fantastic.Image attachmentImage attachment

We are delighted once again, to support the brilliant organisation GMIN. This being our 3rd school with them, and their 42nd!
Peter and Rosie Gent came across our website, and liked what we do and asked to meet up to discuss building a school, and here it is, taking shape and before the monsoon in June/July will be fully operational.
THANK YOU, Peter and Rosie, exciting, watch this space!We would like to thank Peter and Rosie Gent from England for funding the school through Chance for Nepal (UK). We received UK Pound 7,500. We will build four new classrooms in Shree Siddheswori Secondhary high School is located in Sanney village, Vidhyapur Panchhapuri Rural Municipality in Surkhet District. The school is two hours walk from the closest motorable road. The school was established in 1973 [46 years ago]. There are 9 classrooms and 3 classrooms are not safe since the 2015 earthquake. They suffered more damages every monsoons. The total number of students in the school is 354 and runs grade 1 to 10 grade. They are students who walk two hours to get to the school from their homes. They have 10 teachers out of which 7 teachers are government paid and 3 teachers are funded by the villagers. They were able to get funding from the government to build two new classrooms and we will be building four new classrooms.

The NATIONAL PUB QUIZ at The Keep in Guildford last night raised £305 for CHANCE for NEPAL. Jane and Brian, the landlords have entered CHANCE into the National Pub quiz for the past 4 years. We had 29 players and everyone enjoyed a fun evening. Jane cooked a delicious complementary chicken curry with a vegetarian option and they also provided the raffle prizes, by way of great bottles of red and white wine as well as a Neom gift set, all super generous. My thanks also go to Sydney, behind the bar, always smiling, ever helpful.

The money raised from last night’s quiz is being given to SHENPEN, our partner on the ground in Nepal, for their menstrual health programme. This is designed to educate students about hygiene and distribute reusable cotton menstruation pads and information by way of a dignity kit. They are optimistic that the program will change some of the negative cultural beliefs about menstruation in Nepal.

Recognising how menstruation affects a girls ability to get an education they are also actively engaging with these girls, promoting positive messages about female-specific issues. To give training and a dignity kit to 30 students costs £300.

Brilliant initiative SHENPEN, and on International Women's Day!

Sonu is aged 7 and comes from Manthali, 130kms from Kathmandu. Her father is a driver , her mother lives in Malaysia. She has an older brother and Sonu lives with her aunts. They were sharing a cup of tea and on passing the cup between them, the tea spilt onto Sonu’s tummy and thighs. She has made a full recovery and has now been discharged.Fulu is also 7 years old and from Madhikhola, near Pokhara just over 200kms from Kathmandu. She suffered 1stt degree 30% - to 40% burns to her back, neck and thighs.Fulu studies in grade 3 and was getting ready for school. She waiting for her brother to get ready and as she was standing in front of the open fire with her Tiffin box ready to go to school her brother came running up to her and put a cardboard carton onto the fire. This caused a flame which caught Fulu’s skirt alight. Her mother quickly tore off her clothes and applied aloe vera to the affected area. She was first rushed to the district hospital for first aid treatment before being taken to Sushma Koirala Memorial hospital where she had two debridements and a skin graft, but due to the severity of the burn, she ran a high fever and was then transferred to the Kanti Children’s Hospital in Kathmandu where she is recovering well.Bikesh Is 7 months old and comes from Kanchanpiur nearly 700kms from Kathmandu! His father is a migrant labourer working in India to send money back home to the family and his mother looks after him and his older brother aged 5.Bikesh suffered 2nd degree burns to 25% of his legs. Early in the morning, his mother was busy doing household chores while Biskesh was sleeping next to open cooking fire. When he woke up he looked for his mother and rolled onto the hot ashes. His mother rushed to him and poured cold water onto his burns. After which he was rushed to the nearby medical centre and received first-aid treatment. He was then transferred to the Kanti Children’s Hospital for further treatment. He has had two debridements and his dressings are changed on alternate days. His surgery is supported by the Herrod Foundation through CHANCE.With winter comes the cold and most homes have open fires burning not only to cook on but to keep warm by. In such a constricted area, where more often than not, the family live in one room where they sleep, live and cook, often with small children running around, mother trying to cook or clean, or doing chores outside, makes it an accident waiting to happen!The Kanti Children’s Hospital in Kathmandu remains the only hospital specifically for children in Nepal and is a centre of excellence. CHANCE for NEPAL has been funding the weekly food hampers to the burn’s unit and giving surgical support since 2005 with BVS (Burns Violence Survivors) Their continued, tireless efforts to be of support to this unit are outstanding.Image attachmentImage attachment
