Orchid Garden Nepal is home to 140 children aged nursery to grade five who attend on a daily basis. Coming, as they do, from very poor working families they suffer from a variety of preventable health issues which the family cannot afford to pay to have treated in local hospitals. Several times a year our medical volunteers in Nepal visit and give health check-ups to all the children. This past week a group held a health camp at Orchid Garden for the children. Great work volunteers, and thank you.
