The boy Ram now lives in dignity

Six-year old Ram was not born blind, but he was born poor. When he was four, he lost his eyesight after being beaten by his brothers.

A blind Nepalese boy was forced to live in a cowshed. Now Ram is flourishing at a home that is run by Mission East’s partner organisation, HEAD Nepal.

Since 2006, Mission East has worked to develop remote mountain communities in western Nepal. The poverty-stricken population has found new opportunities and hope for the future. A permanent presence in the country also enables Mission East to respond quickly to disaster situations.

Chhepi's fields are green again

In the village of Chhepi the residents rely on irrigation to cultivate the land.
