We aim to send two teams annually to Nepal to support our rehab initiatives. Below you will find the teams who have recently traveled to Nepal and a brief summary of their experiences.
Team 17 spent a week in Tansen, supporting the neuro-rehabilitation program that was started through NepalAbility. This program now includes a 4-bed rehabilitation inpatient unit, so patients with stroke, brain injury and spinal cord injury can receive extended rehab treatment. We will work alongside our Nepali colleagues to continue to support the program, and will be involved in home visits to discharged patients, and a day to fit and dispense donated wheelchairs.
