About

Don’t Go Gently exists solely to support village health, education and community welfare in Nepal. All money that is raised goes straight to those causes, and the only people paid by Don’t Go Gently are our Nepali staff. All directors and other Australian helpers are volunteers.

Who are we?

Don’t Go Gently is a small Australian Registered Not-for-Profit  Charity organisation, borne out of a love for both the people of the rural areas and the natural beauty of the Himalayas.  We have no affliation with any religious institution or government.

Giving Something Back to Nepal

Health

In 2012 we were asked by the village committee members of Thulu Syabru to set up a health clinic, which we did. The committee generously gave us the use of a building, which we stocked with good quality medicines and other medical equipment, and employed our first nurse, the wonderful Dolma. She worked for us for 18 months, then left to do more study. We have continued to help her with her advanced education.

We now employ another great nurse, Badra, and she is supported by her husband Bhim, who is also a nurse. Badra has made some really good changes, and is well respected within the village. Badra and Bhim deliver the babies in the village, and do an amazing job.

At the start of 2016, we arranged and paid for Badra to undertake some primary dental training, so that she could be even more benefit to the village. We aslo purchased the necessary equipment, so now Badra capably does fillings and extractions in the village. The villagers love it...as much as you can love going to the dentist.
