Some of our scholars were not the happiest campers last week! We offered their families the option to have comprehensive medical exams for their children at the Nepal International Clinic. We covered the cost of the exam for 19 children including transport and full blood work. We are committed to following up for a few kids who were identified as needing referrals/additional care. We have a small medical fund that we set up for just this purpose thanks to your generosity. It is hard to stay in school when you are not healthy!
Thanks to our field workers Sonam Shah and Sudeep Kandel for figuring out the logistics for getting all the kids to the clinic, and also to the clinic for offering us a discounted rate. And big thanks to Dr. Pranav Koirala who serves as our medical adviser. Finally, thank you for your donations that made this possible!
