The following is a post from SIRC that I thought worthwhile to reproduce here:
“A huge thank-you to Livability International for the generous donation of 1,838,392.68 NPR (£11,318.30 GBP). This financial support will enable us to continue to provide quality treatment and rehabilitation to the survivors of the earthquakes.
We really value the strong partnership between SIRC and Livability’s International team, which has spanned over the past 14 years and which, as a result, has directly led to the evolution of SIRC as Nepal’s first purpose build SPINAL INJURY REHABILITATION CENTRE.
After the devastating earthquake on April 25, 2015 and all the aftershocks that followed SIRC took the strategic decision to deploy its staff to acute hospitals for early identification and referral of SCI survivors; and to upgrade our capacity to 200 beds to meet the needs of the newly injured. We are grateful to the Livability International team for their constant inputs, advice, mentorship and guidance during this period.
On behalf of staff and patients at SIRC we sincerely thank Livability International for your continued capacity building and financial support to SIRC as we strive towards our mission to strengthen the quality and coverage of services across the country, thereby helping ensure that many more disabled people have access to the essential services they need, in the places where they live. Together we will Build Back Better.”
