Only 100km to go

Ram has just 100km to go,  unbelievable!  This morning I got one of the patients to update the large map we have posted by the courtyard, tracking Ram’s progress.  It is very inspiring for them all.  And for me! I hope to be able to travel to Lumbini to welcome Ram to the completion of his yaatra if at all possible.

Nearly there!

Nearly there!

Ram has also been meeting some ex-patients along the way including Shadananda Pangeni, an ex-patient of Spinal Centre who now has his own grocery store and can support his family.

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.
