About Narchyang Village
Narchyang VDC is a VDC located at Myagdi District in Nepal. The VDC is a multi ethnic and naturally gifted place. The VDC is approximately 321 square kilometres and has a population of 1817, with 349 houses. Health services are a basic necessity and the right of every individual.
Narchyang VDC has no Health Post and currently provides health services out of two small rooms in the VDC building. The community has donated land at the site of the old school. Narchyang VDC has a village Health Care Committee and two health workers trained in Pokhara. The need of a Health Post in Narchyang VDC is inarguable. Therefore, the Lions Club of Pokhara Annapurna has taken on the responsibility of coordinating this project. Accordingly, we set about finding a donor. The American Nepal Medical Foundation (ANMF) USA has generously provided 3,170,225.25 rupees for this project. The rest of the funds will be raised through local contributions and our own club fundraising.
The budgeted cost of a one storey health post with six rooms is approximately 3,425,189 rupees. We are hoping to start this project immediately.
On the 10th of March, 2015, our club organised a free eye camp at Sirsikot, Shyanja, Nepal.
