Weʼre raising £500 to help a care home (Pokhara Aged Shelter ) in Nepal to improve facilities including healthcare for their elderly residents.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

On a recent trip to Pokhara, Nepal to meet my grandparents, I visited a care home in Pokhara called Pokhara Aged Shelter. They are a care home with over 54 elderly residents aged between 58 and 101 and 3 children with cerebral palsy, who had been left homeless and abandoned. The small voluntary organisation provides food, shelter and a place for worship to their residents.

Many of the residents have tragic backstories, which means that many of their medical conditions are worsening as the organisation is setup by crowd funding and cannot afford all medications and medical care required by the residents. In Nepal the healthcare system is not like the NHS where healthcare is free as people must pay upfront for any medical care and medications they receive. Subsequently, with so many residents they cannot afford treatment for all their residents due to the high costs of treatment in private Nepalese hospitals. They also lack a means of transport, which will be very useful for taking residents to the hospital or on local trips.

The local government has provided small grants of £200 but this is nowhere near enough for this cause as due to high import taxes it costs around £150,000 to buy a sizeable transport and an average of £200,000 a year for medical healthcare. This is an urgent situation as many of the residents' health is deteriorating and to have someone show their love and care towards them through donations could help relieve their emotional wounds and improve their health.

Your donations can help provide money for: -Buying a transport for emergency situations and fun outings for the elderly residents - Providing medications and essential health care - Providing a physiotherapy routine equipment as most of the residents have contracted arthritis due to a lack of space and expertise for physiotherapy - Better facilities such as better rooms to help alleviate the pain from these elderly residents. - Local trips to temples and museums as the residents spend all their time in their rooms so more frequent outings would engage their interests and give them hope for a better future.

All of your donations will be transferred to Pokhara Aged Shelter so that they can be used immediately. This fundraiser is set up purely for this organisation (Pokhara Aged Shelter). If you prefer to donate directly to Pokhara Aged Shelter, please acknowledge our campaign page 'Go fund me -Eteesha Rao -UK'. Thank you in advance.

Together we can provide warm homes and medical treatment so that we are one step closer to eradicating geriatric deaths due to homelessness as well as providing a brighter future to the children with cerebral palsy . Every donation makes a huge difference!
