Lincs2Nepal helps Bipisha with her studies
Garry Goddard is currently in Nepal and tells the story:
“Yesterday in Kathmandu, I had the pleasure of meeting up with a young lady who I first met as an 11 year old, back in 2015 while myself and Leo were out here doing earthquake relief work. Her name is Bipisha and she lives in Kathmandu, but her grandparents lived in the village of Hokshe. Hokshe had been devastated by the earthquake and sadly, Bipisha’s grandmother died when their house collapsed. We gave Bipisha, her father and her uncle a lift to Hokshe in our truck. We had the Good Morning Britain film crew with us and I remember them interviewing Bipisha. Her English was amazing, as was her courage at such a difficult time for her. Bipisha said that she wanted to be a nurse when she grew up. Bipisha is now 17, has left school with an A plus and still wants to be a nurse. Unfortunately her parents cannot afford the 3 year college course, so it is an absolute pleasure to support her through her 3 year course and help her achieve her dream. Her ambition is to have a clinic helping the lower caste and homeless in her country. I have absolutely no doubt that she will achieve that ambition.
Charity isn’t about how much you spend, it’s about how you spend it.”
