Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

When the opportunity arose to run the Brighton Half Marathon for an awesome charity with only 4 weeks to go, Maddocks and I thought why the heck not! Please support us on our crazy challenge to get half marathon ready in 4 weeks!

WHAT IS DOCTORS FOR NEPAL? 

DFN aims to improve healthcare in rural Nepal by providing scholarships to under-privileged medical and nursing students. They then return to their communities to provide much needed medical care. DFN was founded by Dr Kate Yarrow in 2008, after spending a year working in the remotest part of Nepal for the international aid organisation Médecins sans Frontières, she made a promise to a young healthcare worker Lalit, that she would sponsor him to fulfil his dream of becoming a doctor.  DFN currently supports 7 medical and 3 nursing students. Our first student, Lalit, graduated as a doctor in September 2012 and two further students, Meena and Nahakul, completed their training in September 2016.  


THE COST OF EACH MEDICAL STUDENT IS IN EXCESS OF £30,000, AND FOR POSTGRADUTE STUDY IN THE CASE OF LALIT IS £40,000, A SUM THAT ONLY THE RICHEST OF FAMILIES CAN AFFORD IN NEPAL.


By supporting Doctors for Nepal, you will be not only be changing the life of one student, but potentially helping to bring medical care to tens of thousands of patients who currently have to walk for days to reach even the most basic of medical care.
