About Our Auction
DOCTORS FOR NEPAL IS HOSTING THIS AUCTION TO RAISE URGENT FUNDS TO PROVIDE PPE TO PROTECT HEALTHCARE WORKERS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IN SOME OF THE MOST REMOTE PARTS OF NEPAL.
Very few hospitals or health-workers in Nepal have any form of PPE, so our goal is to raise as much money as possible to purchase this much needed equipment to help protect our doctors, nurses, and students. Funds raised will be used to purchase PPE and ensure its distribution to our teams across Nepal. If we succeed in raising over £5,000, the additional funds will go towards the continuing tuition fees of our students. It is extremely challenging for us to raise funds in these extraordinary times, so we ask you to dig as deep as you can, to help these forgotten communities.
As lockdown measures ease in the UK, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Nepal continues to rise. As of 24th July, there have been 18,374 cases of coronavirus infections active in 76 districts, with 44 deaths, but Nepal is far behind the West and the number of cases, and ultimately deaths, is certain to rise. We have done our bit to help the NHS here in the UK, so now please help protect the most vulnerable and our very own healthcare workers in Nepal from this deadly virus.
About Doctors For Nepal
The aim of Doctors For Nepal is to improve healthcare in rural Nepal. We do this by providing scholarships for impoverished students to train to become doctors, nurses and midwives. They are then bonded to DFN and the government to provide essential and desperately needed healthcare back in their isolated rural communities.
