Roads to Rehab - Nepal

Roads to Rehab - Nepal is a small-scale charity established in 2016. Their main activity is registered as healthcare access primarily serving adults - aged 25 to under 65 people from a culturally and linguistically diverse background people in rural/regional/remote communities financially disadvantaged people people at risk of homelessness/ people experiencing homelessness people with disabilities unemployed persons victims of disaster females overseas communities or charities.

We provided funding to a project partner organisation in Nepal. This funded and facilitated medical and surgical intervention, nursing care, physiotherapy and rehabilitation services for 40 people who were admitted to NHEDFs Shelter during the course of the 2019 - 2020 financial year. All these patients experienced life changing illness or injury and could not access medical care and rehabilitation services due to poverty. The funds we provided paid the full-time wages of 3 nurses and a physiotherapist and a part time salary for a coordinator of a small project for women with obstetric fistula which operates out of NHEDF. The funds we contributed also provided essential medications, equipment and medical supplies for all patients at the Shelter and contributed to the costs of medical and surgical intervention and hospital expenses. During this financial year we also provided some emergency funding to cover NHEDF's rent. Without this, the organisation would have wound down as they were required to relocate their premises and the costs of doing this were beyond their financial capability at that time. The support we gave to NHEDF ensured people who were referred to the Shelter with life-changing illness or injury received the best medical and nursing care, physiotherapy and rehabilitation services possible. This translated into improved health and rehabilitation outcomes for all those who received support from this wonderful organisation in Nepal with the exception of two patients. These two people sadly passed away - one due to a late stage cancer diagnosis and the other as a direct consequence of delays imposed on her surgery due to Covid-19.
