While physical disabilities are challenging for children the world over, they are doubly so for those living in remote, impoverished areas of the world like Nepal. Since its founding in 1985 by Dr. Ashok Banskota, the Hospital & Rehabilitation Center for Disabled Children (HRDC) has been the fulcrum of life-changing surgery and treatment for more than 100,000 children.
Our vast network of Community Based Rehabilitation workers in the field identify the poorest disabled children in Nepal, who are often hidden away. These children are given world-class surgical interventions, rehabilitation, and follow up back in their villages. At the community level we dispel harmful myths of disability, paving the way for an inclusive society.
