HELPING THE MOUNTAIN PEOPLE OF
NEPAL TO HELP THEMSELVES
CAN is a UK based charity whose aim is to help some of the poorest people on the planet – the mountain people of Nepal.
It helps mountain people to help themselves raise their standard of living and strengthen indigenous, community-based culture
We are now living in unprecedented times, as the world comes to grips with the COVID-19 pandemic. The health of all our staff, both in Nepal and the UK is of paramount importance and all staff in Kathmandu and the UK are working remotely at this time. Our brave nurses have volunteered to remain at their health posts to continue the critical role in providing medicines and health care in the remote mountains. At the moment Nepal has only restricted entry to tourists, trekkers and mountaineers, but based on what we have seen happening across the world, things are likely to change very quickly. We are therefore working closely with our Operations Director in Nepal, Murari Gautam, to ensure that systems and resources are in place to try to keep our staff safe as possible and go on delivering essential healthcare in mountain communities.
Best regards and many thanks for your continued support,
Doug Scott and the CAN team
