Two Happy Patients

You can give to BRINOS. The more we have, the more we can do!        Here’s how:

Charitable donations fund the vital manpower and equipment needed to sustain the Primary Ear Care and Hearing Aid Programme. In addition funding is required in order to purchase and maintain the specialised equipment needed to undertake middle ear microsurgery.

 (The team provide for their own travel etc. for the bi-annual Ear Camps to Nepal) The recent main BRINOS funding drive has been to build the new Ear Care Centre at Nepalgunj. See those pages here.

The “BRINOS XMAS GIVE” back in 2016 raised GBP 6,880 of which GBP 6,000 was matched by our very kind sponsors, Sandy and Fiona Ratray.   Thus the final  total was £12,880. Thank you to everyone, especially Sandy and Fiona
