We are trying to raise enough money to buy a Mini bus. SD is a christian church in Kathmandu who look after people who cannot look after themselves. I was out in Nepal in 2009 and saw at first hand how much the church helps the local community. Healthcare in Nepal works with a Carer assisting each patient when they visit Hospital. The church workers take on this role and provide transport through taxis and public transport for thier Parish.
Today, their ‘parish’ consists of up to 150 people, many of whom would be considered the outcasts of society – wheelchair users, leprosy sufferers, women who have been abandoned by their husbands, the blind, the poor.
St Patricks Church Ballymena are raising money for this cause with the help and support of CMS Ireland.
