We are indebted to the following sponsors and donors
without whose help it would not have been possible to
get Hospice off the ground. It is not only their
financial support that we are grateful for but also for
their moral support and advises.
In chronological order:
We are grateful to the Management of H. M. Hospital,
Maharajgunj for letting us start the Hospice service. We
should not miss to thank the Staff of that particular
hospital who was always very helpful.
We are also thankful to the many people who helped us
start the Hospice. One unique donation which we must
thank for was made by Mr. Prakash Chandwadkar. He
donated 108 beautiful paintings all for free. We did an
Exhibition and the money raised was used in Hospice. We
really appreciate his effort and his great generosity.
In this context, we must also thank Balmandir and the
NAFA for letting us organize the painting exhibition for
free. Thanks also goes to the Kathmmandu Guest House,
especially Sunil and Rajan Shakya for providing
refreshment at the exhibition inauguration.
The present Hospice is built on the land leased by Mr.
Dhruba Raut (a social worker and Chairman of the
Lalitpur branch of Nepal Cancer Society). Without him,
we would not be here and so our deepest thanks to him
and his family.
Next, the beautiful home-like atmosphere was designed
for free by Mr. Rajesh Shrestha of Vastukala Architects.
In fact, we are grateful to him for designing our future
25 bedded Hospice building. This design was brought into
reality free of cost by the CE Construction Company and
special thanks goes to Mr. Om Rajbhandari and the
Directors of the Company for their generous
Recently, International Network for Cancer Treatment and
Research donated money to Hospice Nepal to buy a Maruti
Van to run the Community Hospice Nepal - palliative
service to community. This has helped to make our
community service a reality and has already helped lots
Our special appreciation also goes to another NGO,
Sagarmatha Health Foundation for providing two meals/day
for the very poor and needy patients and their families.
Similarly, we would like to thank Health Net Nepal for
hosting our web site and upgrading it for free.
Most of the things in Hospice Nepal are donated by one
person or the other. Some donated financially, some
bought us goods required, others helped by offering free
service. The list is very long and we have tried not to
forget anybody. If we have by mistake, it is only in
this screen because the hospice family will always
remain indebted to all who have helped. The list follows
and as it grows daily, we will try to upgrade it
Long term donors
