Due to the worldwide Covid 19 crisis we had to cancel our Nepal trip to hold the Janma Days in April 2020. During the Janma Days, we would have personally handed over to the Janma children their sponsorship contributions to cover the school costs. Since there has been no sign of an easing of the world health situation to date, Fondation Nicole Niquille and Janma decided that the Janma Days would be organized by the administrativ director of the hospital Lukla Pasang Lhamu. The hospital staff in Lukla received - with much heart and soul - the sponsored families in small groups in front of the hospital on October 6th and 7th, 2020 and paid the sponsorship contributions to over 110 children and their families. The event was documented photographically and with a video clip.
The Janma Project is developing from day to day and now counts over 225 children for whom we have been able to conclude sponsorships for 10 years.
A big thank you to Pasang Lhamu Sherpa and her team on site! Impressions of the Janma Day can be seen in the video below. In addition, the sponsors can view the current pictures of their sponsored child via login.
With «Janma» we pursue the goal to reduce the maternal and infant mortality in the Himalayas. Parents are motivated through the promise for sponsorship contributions towards the school fees of the child, to travel to the PLNN hospital in Lukla to safely give birth.
The association Janma is a private and personal initiative, which relies primarily on the non-remunerated engagement of a few individuals. Donations to the association are used to cover administrative expenses and to further the development of the project.
Contribute now to the future of a child in the Himalayas. We guarantee that 100% of the sponsorship contributions reach the family directly.
The hospital in Lukla was founded over 10 years ago by Nicole Niquille, a Swiss national, and is being run by Nepalese personnel. The hospital guarantees a large part of the medical care in the Solukhumbu District. Through its system of godparenthood Janma covers the school fees for all children born at the PLNN hospital for 10 years.
