A BBC Radio 4 appeal for INF runs from Sunday 18th February for one week. Anne Wafula Strike shares a moving story of how Parbati’s dignity and independence have been restored.
At the heart of INF’s work is treating people with love and compassion, transforming lives in Nepal with support that is tailored to their individual needs.
We support local Nepali communities and healthcare services, to improve health, reduce poverty, and promote social inclusion.
We are passionate about helping marginalised Nepalis overcome the discrimination they face due to gender, disability, or caste.
The most disadvantaged communities face a lack of access to healthcare, often walking for days to their nearest health post, or being unable to afford even basic treatment.
Our partners also tackle the issues leaving people trapped in extreme poverty, including those vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
Many people are also hindered by a lack of social inclusion, often caused by poverty, gender, disability, or caste.

Anne Wafula Strike, a former Paralympian and disability rights advocate, shares Parbati’s story of rehabilitation. Living in a remote Nepali village, Parbati was left paralysed in 2019 after falling from a tree while collecting food for her family’s goats.
INF Nepal provided Parbati with her first wheelchair and adapted her home to help restore her independence and dignity. She can now once again play a full part in family and community life.
INF’s BBC Radio 4 Appeal is broadcast on Sunday 18th February at 7:54am and 9:25pm, and also on Thursday 22nd at 3:27pm. Donations can be made through the BBC from 18th to 24th February.
By supporting INF you help disadvantaged Nepali people and communities to break free from poverty and suffering.

Help build a new centre to resource the mission of local churches across Nepal. There are exciting plans for a new Community Service Centre in Pokhara, which will develop the ministry and social action of churches and their leaders.
This idea has been in formation over many years, but now the churches around Pokhara have bought a fantastic plot of land through their own generous and sacrificial giving.
Your support can help build the centre and turn their vision into reality. Please pray for these plans and, if you can, donate to help resource local churches in Nepal.
We work closely with our Nepali partner organisations to ensure sustainable, locally-led development.
We focus on healthcare, community resilience, education, and emergency relief.
