Ram completes his Wheelchair Yaatra

As I write this, I am in Pokhara on vacation with Esha and family, so will do one quick post to let you know of the wonderful welcome ceremony in Lumbini for Ram, his wife Sanu Maya and support team from SIRC Prajwal and Binod.  It was very emotional when he arrived and some 60+ people turned out to welcome him to Lumbini – the birthplace of Buddha. For now, here is a photo of the ecstatic Ram laden down with katas presented to him by many of the well wishers, he is postively beaming.  A far more detailed post will come later I promise!

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.
