Celebrating International Nurses Day 2016

Starting in 1965, International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world on May 12th of each year, to mark the contributions nurses make to society.   SIRC took note of such an important day and applauded it’s large team of nurses with much fun and laughter, a delicious cake (of course) and gifts for everyone.

Here are a few photos from the festivities today at SIRC – thanks to Fi Stephenson for providing the photos.

Nurses are generous people, they even shared their cake with the OTs. Actually Keshab (r) can be very convincing.

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.
