Almost 100% of what you donate goes to help the people we support

One of the ways we keep administration costs down is by sourcing donations for services. Until recently we could claim that 100% of all our fundraising and donations go directly to those people whom we are helping however earlier this year we upgraded our website to a plan that costs AUD $240 per year. This remains our only administrative cost. Our bank, St George, kindly waives foreign transactions fees and our website costs were initially donated, as are all the items Virginia brings back from Nepal to raise funds at our dinner. All our Management Committee Members volunteer their services and donate any other expenses. You can make a donation knowing that almost 100% of what you donate will go to help the patients we support….

Read what Kristine, Danielle and Ale did!

A huge thank you to Kristine, Ale and Danielle for making us the beneficiary of your joint 40th birthday parties! $620 was collected in lieu of birthday presents and donated to us just in time for Christmas, which we think is outstandingly generous! Your donations will be used to purchase ongoing medical and physio supplies at the Shelter. Thank you everyone who gave a gift that gives twice!

We can do gift certificates too for Christmas, birthdays, weddings or any other special event!

A gift that gives twice

To give a gift that gives twice,  make a donation and contact us to request a gift certificate. It will be in your inbox ready to print and wrap up just in time for Christmas! Your gift will be used to improve health outcomes for people at NHEDF’s Shelter.


Bring Christmas to NHEDF – NHEDF’s letter to Santa

Group of patients at NHEDF saying 'Namaste'

Dear Santa,

We are very a small organization working with an Australian organisation called Roads to Rehab Nepal. Between us we work to improve health outcomes for people who have life-changing injuries and cannot access medical care because they are poor.

We are writing this letter to let you know that despite our hard work this year, things often do not go smoothly, and our work remains a challenge. It is sometimes difficult for us to meet all our financial obligations and provide everything our patients need because there are so many patients that depend on us and our funding is very stretched.

NHEDF is writing this letter in the hope that you can send some angels or elves to help! Our rent is a very big commitment so please share this letter with your elves, and ask them to share it with everyone they know because what we need does not come easily – We need our own land where we can build our dream Shelter and a magical way to fund all its ongoing costs….

Everyone at NHEDF has been very good this year and has worked so hard for those that depend on us and we are so grateful for any support. If we cannot have land and a Shelter of our own, as much support as you and your elves can organize for us would be very, very, very much appreciated and we promise to continue all our amazing hard work.

If you or your elves would like to make a donation please do this via our website

Thank you, Santa!

With best regards,
