Congratulations to ticket number 18, winner of the lottery for February.
Thank you for your support.
During their summer in Nepal, Jodi and Joe lived and volunteered at Khagendra. They helped staff with care and organised activites including arts and crafts, becoming part of the Khagendra community.
They will be missed by all the staff and residents. The lovely couple also managed to raise £550 for FCN, trekking 5 days in the foothills of Annapurna.
Thank you for all your great work at Khagendra
FCN recently transferred money to Khagendra to boost the fruit budget for over the winter months. Previously, due to the local cost of fruit residents, were only supplied with one item of fruit per week. This will improve the diet of all the residents and provide a much needed vitamin boost, particularly as the temperature drops in the Kathmandu valley.
Thank you again for all your support!
At the end of 2016, John Carpenter walked to the base of the world's highest mountain, raising a brilliant amount of money for FCN in the process. Thank you for all your support John, on behalf of FCN and those in Nepal that will benefit from your fundraising.
Congratulations to ticket number 38, winner of the first FCN lottery of 2017!
Happy New Year to all FCN followers and thank you as always for your support.
Sophie, a student nurse at Huddersfield University, spent a busy Summer volunteering at Khagendra and was loved by all the staff and residents alike. She helped staff with the day to day running of the home and was organised in planning activities for the residents. Prior to her stay at the Centre, she raised £350 by selling her homemade marmalade on behalf of FCN, which was spent on, among others, soap, cleaning equipment, celebration food and invaluable repairs including the site telephone line and earthing the electricity.
Thank you Sophie for all your fantastic and tireless work, on behalf of FCN and all the residents at Khagendra.
The Winner of this months lottery is Number 15 who wishes to remain anonymous. Congratulations! £50 is on its way to you.

I am delighted to say that Tika Ram, long term resident at Khagendra and film maker, has finally received his electric wheelchair. Funded through the brilliant Paula Morris and FCN, the chair will allow Tika freedom and independence in moving around the care home and neighbourhood. Previously Tika was reliant on others to move around due to the nature of his disability causing global loss of power. Tika is an advocate for rights for disabled people in Nepal and in the past has made films highlighting the issues society poses on disabled people. Thank you to all the sponsors for all your amazing support!
