Project Nepal is an Canadian initiative supporting medical and development work in the country of Nepal. The project focuses on supporting the work of several mission hospitals in remote rural areas of the Himalayas in the areas of medical charity work and providing volunteer physicians to support the local physicians and assist in training the Nepali residents. The project also is building capacity of a local NGO which serves as a “patient navigator” for people being referred to Kathmandu from remote areas of the country for specialized care. This includes a Child Rehabilitation Fund and a Child Heart Fund which covers the cost of these services for children whose families cannot afford to pay for this type of medical care.
