About Us:

The Gurkha Welfare Trust is the leading Gurkha charity in Nepal. We enable Gurkha veterans, their families and their wider communities to live their lives in dignity.

Financial Support:

We provide a Welfare Pension to impoverished Gurkha veterans or widows who aren't eligible to receive the standard Army pension.

The rate is calculated each year using a 'shopping basket' of basic goods such as rice, vegetables and firewood. For many people, this is their only source of income.

Residential Homes:

Our two Residential Homes provide round-the-clock care to Gurkha veterans and widows who would otherwise struggle to live alone. With no comparable project in Nepal, they set the standard of care for the elderly.

Medical Aid:

We offer a high standard of free medical care for all Gurkha vetearns and their dependants in Nepal. We give this at our Welfare Centres, during home visits and we pay for some treatments at national hospitals.

Water and Sanitation:

Our water projects bring clean water to people's doorsteps. We install individual tap stands and toilets for all households within a village. By ensuring a safe water source and reducing open defication, we see sharp drops in waterborne diseases such as dysentery. Having a water source close by also reduces the burden on women and children, who traditionally spend hours collecting water each day.
