His Excellency Mr. Syed Abrar Hussian, Ambassador of Pakistan to Nepal handed over “Nissan Urvan” ambulance to Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) today. During the event, centre’s Chairperson Mrs. Meera Jyoti said that the cases of spinal cord injury is increasing day by day. So this is a very precious gift to the centre. She added that proper transportation plays a vital role in the transfer of the patients after injury so that they do not sustain secondary injury.

Mr. Kanak Mani Dixit, founder chairperson of SIRC said that centre has been catering to the increasing number of SCI patients with limited resources, mainly due to lack of funds. He announced that, he will drive the SIRC’s mascot “1973 model Volkswagen Beetle” to Lahore Pakistan in March 2011. The per kilometer sponsorship will raise funds for SIRC.

The centre started in Jorpati in 2002 and moved to its own building in Sanga, Kavre in 2008. At present SIRC can accommodate  up to 35 patients but is in the plan to expand up to 51 beds due to increasing number of spinal cord injury, said Esha Thapa Dhungana, Director of SIRC.

Wheelchair Yaatra on News

                                                                               Wheelchair Yaatra in Kantipur

 

Friday night’s Fundraiser for Ram’s Wheelchair Yaatra was a resounding success where over Rs.85,000 was raised in this one night alone.  Add this to the Rs.374,000 raised by Rosie Russell’s friends in the US, brings the Grand Total to Rs. 459,000 – wow!  This more than covers the cost of Ram’s Wheelchair Yaatra and will allow for additional awareness of SCI in Nepal.  Many Thanks and Much Appreciation to all our donors and well wishers around the world.

Ram Bahadur Tamang, a 31-year old paraplegic from Mankha Valley aspires to raise awareness on Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) among people in his wheelchair expedition, covering a remarkable distance of over 300 km stretching from Namo Buddha to Lumbini. Ram, currently a vocational training staff at SIRC and also a national wheelchair-basketball player, is determined to accomplish his maiden voyage, not only to generate public awareness on SCI, but also to meet and motivate others like him on the way!
If adequate support can be arranged for his optimistic effort, it is foreseeable that his determination and perseverance will transcend across national and international boundaries.

What a great day we had at the 9th SIRC Charity Golf Tournament!  The sun shone while play was underway, and thankfully,  the rain held off until the prize giving and raffle draw was complete.  There were ten lucky golfing winners, and a further 4 lucky raffle winners, so many smiling faces on Saturday afternoon. SIRC was humbled and happy to receive substantial cash donations from 28 esteemed members of the Royal Nepal Golf Club for which we are most grateful.  We would like to thank our Main Sponsor – Nepal Investment Bank Ltd., our Key Sponsor – ICTC, our In-Kind Sponsors, our many Hole Sponsors and prize Donors, for helping us make this event a special one.  Just under Rs.560,000 was raised to benefit the Poor Patient Fund at SIRC.  We salute you all.  Hope to see you next year.  Fore!

 

The Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Center, run by non-profit Spinal Injury Sangha Nepal, seeks to roll back, as far as possible, the despair that is the burden of victims of spinal injury and their families. Sir Edmund Hillary opened the Center on 7 April 2002. The spinal injury rehabilitation centre is an independent organization that only recently has received funding from the government sector.

The SIRC Charity Golf Tournament sports perhaps the most graceful trophy for any sporting event in Nepal. The event has been continuously organized every year as a token of respect for the people living with spinal injury and at the same time aims to raise fund for the spinal injury rehabilitation centre.

This tournament leads up to SIRC’s 12th Anniversary celebration on 7th April 2014 and hence plays vital role. The program will be a gathering of prominent personalities including Miss Ishani Shrestha – the current Miss Nepal, Excellencies and golf lovers of Nepal.
