Lumbini here I come!!

It’s official, Ram has just 31kms to complete his Wheelchair Yaatra as at this morning.  So the celebration we are organizing will definitely take place on Friday April 18th at 8am.  Looks like I will be on the road tomorrow Thursday to get there in time! Very exciting for Ram, I spoke to him  by Skype yesterday and he is pumped.  A definite hero and inspiration to us all.  Jai Ram!

Just 31kms to go

We sent this Wheelchair Yaatra Completion Press Release – Lumbini in both English and Nepali, to all the media.  we have had some really good coverage thus far so it would be great to get them out to this celebration. And here is the invitation posted on SIRC facebook in the hopes the Friends of SIRC will come out in their droves to help celebrate this momentous occasion.  We think this is the first ever Wheelchair Yaatra of it’s kind in Nepal.

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.
