In November 2022, Rajendra Gautam, a Past President of the Rotary Club of Kathmandu presented to our Club on various Rotary projects underway in his home country.
Following a proposal from our International Committee, in early 2023, the Rotary Northbridge Board approved a donation of $A5000 for the supply and installation of medical equipment to the Dudhkoshi Community Hospital in Solukhumbu. This donation, combined with donations from the Rotary Clubs of Kathmandu, Balwyn, and Albury has facilitated the establishment of a fully equipped Operating Theatre Unit, supporting a regional population of over 22,000, in one of the world's poorest countries.
Northbridge Rotary is proud to again been able to support our friends in Nepal with this important project.
