Individual Support For Diasabled People

Personal care for disabled people in Nepal includes improving their living and health condition. Most of the disables of Nepal are lacking medical and daily needs support because government has no such policy. A complicating factor is that disabled people who live in remote village is difficult to assess.

 FNV supported four disabled children (two were supported for four years) on medication, clothes and nutrition. We are very thankful to people those are helping to disabled children through FNV. Individual donors were also helping this program. The FNV aims to support more such poor children in villages of Nepal in future also.
