As the year 2016 comes to an end and we prepare to welcome the new year, I would like to thank you for your support to the Binaytara Foundation and its projects.
The year 2016 was pretty eventful for me personally and for the Binaytara Foundation. I started a new job, moved to a new town, and received the Sweeny Spirit of Medicine award from the University of Illinois School of Medicine . But these events are normal part of life and don’t have much impact on the rest of the world. On the other hand, the Binaytara Foundation has made lasting impacts in many lives this year.
I need your support to continue these efforts and to make impacts on a bigger scale. I know there are many worthy causes to donate to. Here is why the Binaytara Foundation’s projects are equally in need of your support.
The Binaytara Foundation started the year 2016 by establishing a home hospice program in Nepal in January. The program has already served 74 patients as of November 2016. The Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Center we helped establish in Nepal started BMT services in August 2016; 3 patients have already been given second life through this project. In November 2016, we partnered with the government of India to establish a home hospice program in Madhya Pradesh, a state that is home to 73 million people. This partnership will forever change the way terminally ill patients in India spend the last few days or weeks of their lives.
Please make a donation now and help us touch more lives.
The Binaytara foundation has some ambitious plans for the coming years. The need for hospice care in Nepal is ever growing and there are no home hospice or palliative care services available to people living outside of Kathmandu valley. We plan to mobilize local physicians, donors, grant-makers and our dedicated volunteers to make hospice care available in all of Nepal within the next two years. By utilizing technology and training the existing healthcare manpower, we believe this goal, while ambitious, is attainable if we continue to get the support of generous donors and well-wishers like you.
At the Binaytara Foundation, we believe in humanity not in boundaries. Besides our projects in Nepal and India, we are starting two cancer related projects in Washington state to improve the quality of life of cancer patients. I feel very privileged to have the friends & partners like you and being in a position to make a difference. When I started this organization about a decade ago, it was that faith in you and the confidence that you will support me in this mission that encouraged me to get involved in this humanitarian mission.
I am writing today, with the same faith and confidence that you will support our projects. The cost of our home hospice project is less than $25/day. Please make a donation to our projects and help the people far and near have a better quality of life.

Thank you again for your support!
