Nick is a GP and Caroline is a primary school teacher who have both enjoyed trekking holidays in Nepal. When our Nepali friends and trekking guides Nabu and Ramesh invited us to come and do some voluntary work in their village we said yes without giving it much thought.
The invitation opened the door to a unique opportunity for us to live and work among some truly amazing people; the ordinary working people of rural Nepal. We were touched by the hospitality we received and by the strength, kindness and good humour of the people we met. We hope that our work in the hospital and the school went some way to giving something back to the community.
We were very sad to hear of the earthquake last year and the devastation in the Arughat region. Since then the Arughat Support Fund has raised funds to help rebuild the school and to give funding to health needs in the area.
We would like to thank everyone who has supported our work so far and we hope that we can continue to help.
