A success – Telling a story: Living and Working in Nepal and Bangladesh Event

Check out Facebook for some photos and here for Letter to the Undercurrent.

A very successful event here on Bowen Island this afternoon. A total of 78 people turned out, far exceeding our expectations and heartwarming for us to see you all there.

A total of CAD$2,804 | NPR232,000 was the net amount raised. This equates to sponsoring One Patient for their Entire Rehabilitation Costs PLUS the purchase of Two Wheelchairs PLUS One Income Generating Kit. Wow! How very generous of you all. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making such a difference in the lives of these patients.

A huge thank you to our fabulous team of volunteers and all those who helped us make this event the success it was.

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.
