Progress April 4 His wife joined him two days ago for a visit but has decided to stay on, until they reach Lumbini. Wife April 4 And I love this shot because I can just hear Ram’s passion for SCI prevention and concern for this women whom he spotted along the side of the road.  Ram warned her of the potential for a spinal cord injury when collecting fodder up a tree.  This is one of the primary causes of spinal cord injuries in Nepal.  As you can see, she could do herself some serious damage if she fell.

About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.
