Many thanks to Cameron and the Scouts for their efforts.  The local community was deliriously happy that someone had helped along their project “out of the blue”.  So much so that they wanted to have an opening party and they had used the grant funds as a stepping stone to other local fund raising.

The health worker who will use the facility and has waited almost a decade, working without facilities, often from her own home, gave an emotional speech thanking the Trust and the donors for delivering what her own country had been unable to provide.

Prior to the opening we were all treated to a wonderful lunch, served by ladies in traditional Magar dress.
