In 2021 the Britain Nepal Society awarded two annual grants to:
Burns Violence Survivors and The Nestling Trust.
Burns Violence Survivors is the only non-governmental organisation working to support burns patients throughout Nepal. The grant will fund a prevention communication programme via radio broadcast across Nepal which will alert people to the danger of fire and spread awareness on immediate first aid and burn care management.
The Nestling Trust operates in a similar sector (midwifery and neonatal care) to last year’s grant recipient – Help Nepal Foundation – but in a very different part of the country. The grant will go towards essential equipment for a new health and birthing centre in Baiteshwor District where neonatal deaths are thought to have tripled during the global pandemic.
