Three more generous donations for SIRC

First up is the Walkabout Foundation and Aaron Krupp who donated Walkabout wheelchairs to SIRC and also provided training to SIRC’s Wheelchair Service Department and patients on repair and maintenance of wheelchairs.  Thank you Aaron!

Another donation of skills and expertise from my friend Ian Cameron of IC Productions, Vancouver Canada.  Ian took over 400 photos of patients and the SIRC at work, as part of a photobook SIRC hopes to publish next year on the 1st anniversary of the devastating earthquakes Nepal suffered through in April and May 2015.  Thank you Ian!

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.
