Specific Equipment & Funding Needs

Specific Equipment & Funding Needs


If you would like to designate your donation specifically to one particular area, be it towards the purchase of a piece of equipment or other project please see our list of current needs below.

In the past some donors have prefered to buy an item themselves directly from the supplier and then have it sent to us. This is possible with some of the smaller items but please do contact us beforehand for details of suppliers and also as there are various custom-clearance documents that need to be arranged before we can receive the item. If you are thinking of donating in this way please get in touch with us first.


Many thanks.

Dr Rachel Karrach

Hospital Director



1. Medical Assistance Fund:

We continue to appreciate donations to our Medical Assistance (Pastoral Care) Fund – helping the poorest members of society to afford hospital care and pay their treatment bills. Click here for more details.

Looking to the future is crucial. The new postgraduate training fund will enable us to send junior Nepali doctors for further training, thus providing senior staffing for the hospital in the years to come.
