We are proud to announce a new healthcare program, our very first in Nepal! Our local partner, Public Health Concern Trust, is an internationally-recognized NGO which brings cutting-edge healthcare to Nepal’s most marginalized people. Its medical school in Kathmandu is one of the best in the country.
While we look forward to celebrating and enjoying the Thanksgiving, Holidays, and the New Year, let us rededicate ourselves to the IDRF motto, Service to Society is Service to God, and extend a helping hand to the needy and the downtrodden to the best of our ability. IDRF strives to help them realize their full potential and lead a life with dignity and self-esteem. IDRF remains committed to make grants to the grassroots, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) managed by dedicated volunteers in India.
