Rural Health Practitioners & Medical Center Clinical Practice Manager- The GWT-N
The Gurkha Welfare Trust was founded in 1969 when it was realised that thousands of ex-Gurkha servicemen and their widows were living in destitution in the hill villages of Nepal. Its services in Nepal are delivered through a network of 22 Welfare Centres. 340 staff work tirelessly in Nepal delivering the Trust’s vital services.
The Trust cares for the health of its Welfare Pensioners through its free Medical Programme. It also provides one-off Hardship Grants to help when disaster strikes and, for those pensioners no longer able to live at home, the Trust provides round-the-clock care at its Residential Homes in Pokhara and Dharan.
The Trust has always supported the hill communities in which the Gurkha veterans live. Its Rural Water & Sanitation Programme brings safe drinking water and improved hygiene to villages throughout Nepal, while its School Programme undertakes builds, repairs and refurbishes schools as part of its commitment to develop rural educational facilities.
With Gurkhas increasingly retiring to the UK, the Trust now has a role supporting the welfare needs of those Gurkhas who have chosen to live here. It provides advice and information from its Welfare Centres based in Salisbury and Aldershot.
