Welcome to the website of the Disabled Newlife Centre, Nepali Charity in Kathmandu, working with physically challenged children (DNC) was established in 1998 with the purpose of providing support to the physically challenged children in Nepal. The objective is to give these children who requried special attention in the growing years with the required care, medication in the form of corrective surgery and support in the form of education and accomodation.
DNC has 11 board members and 1 Non Residential staff and 4 Residential staff to care for 30 residence children who are either orphans or who’s family are unable to care for them. The centre has also given medical help to a futher 65 children.
Traditionally in Nepal, disability is considered a curse of God and there is widespread belief that disability is linked to “bad karma”. Few believe that disabled people can be equally functional and can become productive members of society. As a result, children with disabilities often have low esteem. And may suffer discrimination.
Our mission is to help physically disabled children to be integrated into society by providing medical treatment, rehablitation, education and vocational training.
We hope this website will give you the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the welfare of our children. You can help by supporting an individual child; donating to improve conditions at the centre or by bringing your skills and passion to the most needy by volunteering.
