Founder’s visit to Nepal
The founders of BNMT Ms. Gillian Kellie Stewart, Mr. Peter Hawksworth, Ms. Rosemary Boere and her husband Mr. Wim Boere visited Nepal on 09 March 2018. Ms. Stewart and Ms. Boere were one of the original nurses and Mr. Peter Hawksworth (as a technician) who came to Nepal in February 1968 and volunteered themselves for two to three years with virtually no reward apart from satisfaction of supplying desperately needed services to the people of Nepal.
Their main objective of this visit was to be updated on BNMT’s current work and future plans but above all they wanted to visit Biratnagar, Dharan Dhankuta and up to Hile where they worked and established clinics fifty years ago, the hill drug schemes and Tuberculosis programmes and reminisce it.
With great honour, BNMT Nepal’s director, Mr. Suman Chandra Gurung welcomed them and shared about organisation’s current projects, progress and future plans. Similarly, they also shared briefly about their journey from United Kingdom to Nepal fifty years ago. Finally, a group of photograph was taken with the founders along with BNMT staff.
