Examing the sarees

The SIRC Entertaining Evening and Silent Auction Fundraiser is a Success! We would like to thank every individual and organization who have helped us in every possible way to make this event successful.


What is a Silent Auction?

It is where a number of exclusive prizes are listed on individual sheets, their value and minimum bid outlined.  The first bidder must bid at least the minimum bid by writing his/her name and amount of bid on the Bid Sheet.  Subsequent bidders continue to bid, each bidder outbidding the previous bid.   After an hour or two during the evening, the bidding on the items will be closed and the successful bidders announced.  The successful bidders then collect their prize and pays for the item.  All monies raised from the successful bids will go directly to support those suffering with spinal injury through SIRC.

The money raised at this event will benefit the patients of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre and their carers.

Thank You All!

The Big Idea

SIRC along with our long time partner Livability, have just launched the “Big Idea” Project.  It’s aim is to support 50 financially challenged patients to receive rehabilitation services at the Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre. £10 a day is all it takes to provide a total package of care including therapy, vocational training and home modification for each patient.



Disability and poverty go hand in hand. In Nepal a person with a disability and their family are less likely to have access to rehabilitation, education, skills training and employment – opportunities which reduce poverty. This project will solve the problem for poor patients requiring rehabilitation following spinal injury, enabling them to return home as active members. Without this support, patients will continue to suffer from preventable complications, social exclusion and early death.



By supporting 50 financially challenged patients, it allows rehabilitation to be provided for these patients, who otherwise could not afford to pay. Specialized rehabilitation for the spinally injured enables the patients to lead full and independent lives, to improve their quality of life and to relieve the burden of care on their families.


Please Donate

Please donate on Big Give’s website.  Your donation is crucial to giving financially challenged people with spinal injuries, HOPE.
