Free health camp and goat farming training held in Dhading

KATHMANDU: A one-day free health camp was conducted at Shankhadevi Secondary School at Jyamrung village in Dhading on January 8, 2022.

A total of 254 school students benefited from the health camp organized by Africa-Asia Destitute Relief Foundation (ADRF) Nepal with the support of Lions Club of Kathmandu, Gongabu.


Two physicians and two dentists from Dhading Hospital provided general health check-up and dental check-up services to school children during the health camp.

Some of students at the camp were found to suffer from infection attributed to the consumption of contaminated drinking water in the locality. They were referred for further treatment.

ADRF Nepal’s Project Manager Prakash Dhamala said the health camp was aimed at providing free health services to children living under the line of poverty as the world was grappling with the coronavirus situation.

Similarly, ADRF Nepal also held a goat farming training for farmers of Jyamrung in collaboration with the Worldwide Goat Project Nepal (WGPN). WGPN also distributed goats to farmers after the training.

The goat training and distribution program aimed to encourage farmers to earn decent livelihood through goat farming by utilizing new breeds and technologies.

The training was attended by 57 farmers of Neelkantha Municipality-11.

WGPN’s Founder Daniel Lee Laney supported and facilitated both the programs organized with the initiative of ADRF Nepal.
