Pokhara Ear Camp

A group of 33 people including the local Nepali team ran a highly efficient camp that helped 1,370 patients, more than on any previous camp we have held. Surgery (186 operations), outpatients and audiology (710 audiograms and 274 hearing aids fitted) ran continuously for 9 days.

Then on the last day we saw all the postoperative patients and held our dedication ceremony on the site of the planned ear hospital. We were delighted to have several local ENT doctors join us every day.

We had a beautiful ceremony on the grounds allocated for the Ear Hospital, with a magnificent Himalayan backdrop. INF leadership who were in the very first meeting when it was agreed to develop the project were present as speakers, then Lukas Eberle representing the main Swiss donor organisation spoke, followed by Mike Smith, who outlined the needs and the original vision for the project.

Funding Success

We received the initial bids from the large engineering firms hoping to get the building contract. We are now certain that the funds raised are adequate for the hospital building. This is very exciting after several years of effort.
