If you asked most team members what motivates them to return to Nepal, it would have to be the patients. Its always humbling, getting to know our patients and with the help of a translator, hearing amazing stories….

“The trip here has taken 5 days. Its my first time on a bus”….

“I was 2 years old when I fell into the fire. I was taken to the nearest hospital which was 4 hours away”…..

“I’m hoping that the operation will help me walk again”….

“It will be good to look someone in the eye without the scars pulling at my neck forcing me to look at the ground”.

It’s the patients which tug at our hearts.
