70 years of service in Nepal

As INF celebrates its 70th anniversary, we want to say THANK YOU for everything you have done to contribute towards INF’s seven decades of service in Nepal.

On 17th November 1952, INF’s pioneers – including Pat O’Hanlon and Hilda Steele – arrived in Pokhara after many years of faithfully waiting on the Indian border.

Over the subsequent 70 years, many more people have played their part in serving the people of Nepal.

We join the international INF family in giving thanks and praise for all the ways in which INF has been able to meet the needs of the most disadvantaged Nepalis.
