Healthcare in Nepal

In Nepal, people with conditions such as leprosy, spinal cord injuries, and other disabilities are often still seen as cursed and actively excluded from society. Their self-image can often be marred. They may have lost all sense of worth, seeing the future as bleak and unliveable. This is why INF’s Shining Hospitals are needed in Nepal.

Our aim for our patients is not simply treatment and rehabilitation.

Many patients stay in hospital for several weeks, some for months. The contact with peer counsellors, pastoral care workers and staff means that they regain confidence and hope.

Watch how INF’s Shining Hospitals can make such a big difference to patients’ lives.

THE SHINING HOSPITALS – TREATING THE WHOLE PERSON

More than 80,000 patients come to INF’s three Shining Hospitals each year. Those who cannot afford to pay for the services receive financial help from INF’s Medical Charity Fund. Thousands more patients find help through our medical and surgical outreach programme which takes free specialist treatment to remote areas where health services are limited.

“Patients should get the best treatment that resources allow – clean wards, kind nurses, kind doctors. We want to give them a complete treatment and be able to share God’s love.”

Dr Dipak Maharjan, Medical Director

OUR AIM FOR OUR PATIENTS IS HOLISTIC CARE THAT HEALS THE WHOLE PERSON

As well as receiving the best possible medical care, patients see peer counsellors and pastoral care workers who can offer the emotional support they and their families need to recover fully.

This is why INF’s Shining Hospitals can make such a big difference to patients’ lives.
