Neonatal and Paediatric Critical Care

In Nepal, the outlook for children requiring critical care is poor. The Japanese government has built new and well-equiped Neonatal and Paediatric Intensive Care Units.

Distribution of Knitted Items

So the Child May Live recently took numerous knitted items to Nepal, where they were distributed between Kanti Children’s Hospital and a local heath centre near Manegau, Kavre.
