SIRC celebrates OT Day

In acknowledgement of the great contribution Occupational Therapists make as part of SIRC’s hard working Multi-Disciplinary Team, Keshab (OT department head) threw a little party to celebrate OT Day sponsored by ANOT.

It wasn't just about the staff, the patients got to do some OT in a fun way - knock over the bottle game!

As well as a game of boules.  Look at the concentration & competitiveness on the faces of the participants!

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.
