The Nestling Trust
The Nestling Trust
Founded in 2013, to assist the population of poor remote areas of rural Nepal, the trust has worked in partnership with local NGO's and health services to provide basic health care and health education to villages where none existed previously. It also gave immediate humanitarian aid following the earthquake in 2015 - including the piping of running water to 4 villages and providing materials for 3 village health clinics to be constructed.
Our vision is for the people of remote rural Nepal to have access to basic health care close to their homes.
To facilitate the construction of village health clinics, to equip and staff them, and to ensure their long term sustainability.
