Kids (KFK Nepal) runs a Mother and Child Health Clinic (MCH-Clinic)
in the rural mountain communities of Rasuwa, Nepal. KFK
Nepal is a non-government charity organization working
to save the lives of children in Nepal since 1997.
KFK-Nepal’s MCH Clinic has been
providing the medical services to approximately 7,000 people of remote Gatlang,
Goljung, and Chilime villages of Rasuwa district since late 2000. Before this
clinic was established, there was no medical service available in these
communities. Because of the extreme level of poverty in these
communities and remoteness from a nearby hospital, which is about a days
walking distance, most people could not manage to get medical care when they
were sick. Seeking care from local healers who did not have access to modern
medical techniques or treatments and was the only option. Government outreach
immunization services were so infrequent and irregular that many children were
left without immunization against the major childhood illnesses. Prior to
KFK’s Clinic it was difficult to find a mother who had not lost a child and
impossible to find a household without a sick person. It is estimated that
the Child and Maternal Mortality rates of these communities have been almost
two-to-three times higher than the national average. Nepal's average infant
mortality rate, 78 deaths per 1000 live births, and average maternal mortality
rate, 539 deaths per 100,000 live deliveries, are among the highest in the
||KFK operates on an extremely
low budget. For about the cost of lunch in an American restaurant,
$15.00/day, we staff the clinic and provide medical supplies and equipment
as well as overhead costs, such as utilities. But even this small sum of
money is difficult to obtain in a country as poor as Nepal. We
desperately need your help to save lives and improve the health and
well being of these poor, indigenous Buddhist-Tamang communities on the
How You Can Help Save this Clinic and build
a) Individual Sponsorship: We welcome
and encourage individuals to sponsor our basic clinic operation cost. To meet
our yearly budget of US$ 7500, we need just 25 people to contribute the small

b) Volunteers supports: We welcome and
encourage professionally trained medical personal, preferably nurse
practitioners, midwife, and medical doctors to provide volunteer services in
our clinic. Interested individual should be able to cover his or her own
costs while we will provide free accommodations.

request charity organizations and corporate agencies to help us sustain,
develop, and expand our medical and other development activities such as
sanitation, community health education, community library, child education
