Do you want to make a lasting difference in the lives of others?

We have the knowledge, expertise, and passion to accomplish our goals of ensuring that every patient has access to exceptional care, and to become a leader for primary healthcare in rural Nepal.

But we can’t do it alone.

With a major gift or trust or business partnership, you can work with us to save lives and improve health.

Corporate Partnerships
Corporate Partnerships

Corporate partnerships work best when we find synergies between our work and your corporate values, expertise and locations. We can help you enhance your brand through media coverage, team building, profile raising, skills exchange and staff motivation.

Primary Healthcare Center Nepal
Philanthropy

There is no greater act of kindness than that of giving back to help those in need. 

Clinical Research
Research Partnerships

Robust research studies enable us to develop the evidence base and access the funding we require to improve healthcare and transform lives in rural Nepal. We recognise that we cannot develop all the tools needed to achieve our vision on our own, so we develop partnerships with universities and research institutions, around the world.

The strengths that we bring to collaborations and consortia include a strong project management team, extensive technical expertise in the project design, implementation of research and a network of downstream NGOs, institutions and civil society partners.

Direct Relief Medical Aid
Non-profit organizations
We believe that effective partnerships are based on the principles of shared values, transparency and equality, and welcome discussions with prospective partners on the value that we can bring to collaborative programmes.

With Direct Relief’s Nepal Earthquake 2015 funds mostly spent, they had enough funds remaining to support only one additional project. Therefore, the organisation collectively chose to support the Mountain Heart Nepal hospital project over a few other strong candidates leading to the establishment of Siddhasthali Rural Community Hospital. 

To date, Direct Relief has provided medical donations with a wholesale value of over $4 million USD and cash support of $500,000 USD to Mountain Heart Nepal and the hospital.

CHANCE for NEPAL, a UK based charity works closely with Mountain Heart Nepal to help elevate suffering and improve the health, education and well-being of children. 

The non-profit is supporting Mountain Heart Nepal Hospital Project in various ways. A beautiful sensory garden dedicated to Jenny Bradshaw will be built in the hospital with support from her parents (Dave and Jackie) and CHANCE for NEPAL. The hospital garden is designed for free by Andy Sturgeon, 8 times gold medalist at the Chelsea Flower Show and overall winner in 2019. 

The organisation is also raising funds to support 15 hospital beds, an incubator, wheelchair, ECG machine and by offering two disadvantaged women from the local area, to attend a vegetable skills training course with the Women’s Cooperative Society. The training will enable the women to return to the hospital site with the knowledge (and support for each other), to grow vegetables which in turn they will sell to the hospital to feed staff and patients as well as sell at the market, thus enabling them to educate their children with the money they make. The incubator for the hospital is contributed by Ashley Sault who raised funds through CHANCE for Nepal on her 50th birthday.

A very dear friend of Barbara Datson, founder of CHANCE was dying of cancer with weeks to live who wanted to donate £1000 to her organisation. Founder, Barbara was so touched and told her that she would use it to fund equipment (an ECG Machine) for the Siddhasthali Hospital. Jo was very happy to know her memory would live on in saving lives on the other side of the world.

As we saw a rise in COVID-19 cases in Nepal, we appealed to the Rotary Plympton based in the UK to help set up an emergency helpline number – a toll-free number – and advertise it locally for people who need medical advice (Telemedicine). With their help, we were able to employ a field community counsellor and provide free counselling and medical consultation to more than 500 COVID-19 patients and their families per month.
