Mainapokhari, Nepal, 7 October 2013 – After two and a half years since HCH’s original plan to built a maternity clinic in the remote mountain area around mainapokhari, the day of the opening was a fact. Although final constructions still going on, the festivities started to invite and involve the local communities in the brand new healthcare facility, located in the green valley and overlooking the several villages that will be benefit from the new services. The healthcare in this remote area is poor and with the new hospital a major problem will be addressed. With a tremendous effort from both Dutch and Nepali partners for the realization of the clinic the further management and ownership of hospital is transferred to the Village Development Committee. More information and an extensive report following soon.
