At Ujeli Care Center we provide free medical support and free consultation to children aged under 18 years, from two orphanages and ten government schools, but also to those who are homeless. We also support mothers and teachers as we believe their health crucial to all children’s future. This allows these children to gain medical care, which they could otherwise not afford.
Ujeli Care Centre is established to make the world better. Our goal is to provide free medical support, free consultation as well as prevention of disease with health camps is to treat children and families who do not have access to essential medical care.

My name is Aida Ramos and I am a medical student from Spain. The past July of 2022 I had the opportunity to travel to Nepal to study during a month. In my clinical vocation in the General Surgery department, I met Dr Dinesh. He not only thought me about the amazing world of Pediatric Surgery, but also showed his inspiring and incredible project of the Ujeli Care Center. For one day I went to the center and experienced first-hand the work was done there. I had the opportunity to explore the kids that went and help with the diagnosis and treatment. It was a life-changing experience to remind me why I love medicine and the importance of this kind of projects. I am looking forward to return to Nepal as soon as I am able to and collaborate in this beautiful project.

Ujeli Care Center in Pokhara is a promising initiative of Dr. Dinesh that deserves our support. After the difficult COVID years, the thread has to be picked up again. The infrastructure is there, Dr. Dinesh continues to be involved very bravely. I have some experience in development projects and know that a lot depends on the leadership. in this case I have every confidence in it.

I first travelled to Nepal in early 2012 as part of a volunteering project. With my close friend Sam, we were hosted by a very kind Nepalese family and based at the Alka Hospital in Kathmandu. It was here that I met Dr Dinesh and became involved with the Ujeli Care Centre. Dr Dinesh was very welcoming and generous; he soon took us under his wing and introduced us to many wonderful places and parts of Nepalese Culture. He shared his idea of the Ujeli Care Centre, and his vision for the future. His passion and genuine commitment to improve the health and wellbeing of children in Nepal was clear, and I was inspired to be even a small part of it. We travelled with Dr. Dinesh to his home town of Pokhara and helped out with multiple health clinics at rural schools in the region. This was an incredible opportunity to be a part of, and we could see the difference Dr Dinesh and his team were making. Back home in Australia, we raised some funds to assist with future projects. I returned again to Nepal in 2015 to see Dr. Dinesh and assist with Ujeli Care Centre. It was fantastic to be reunited with a close friend, uplifting to see the progress the centre had made, and inspiring to see that Dr. Dinesh's passion and commitment to his vision remained strong. Despite several years now in between visits, I will always hold a special place in my heart for Ujeli Care Centre and wish all the best for the future.

I have spent August 2022 in Nepal, where I was doing a clinical rotation in General Surgery department in Thibhuvan teaching hospital. During my rotation in Pedriatic Surgery department, I met Dr. Dinesh. He taught me a lot about pedriatic surgery, but more importantly he introduced me hi project: Ujeli Care Center. When visiting Pokhara, I got to spend one day there. Everyone I met was so enthusiastic about the work they are doing there, especially Soya which takes such a great care of every kid which comes through Ujeli door. The vision of the project touches everyone who is able to either participate in it or at least experience it. I hope that next time I come to Nepal this project will be closer to becoming an amazing hospital for poor kids and I am more than ready to be part of that again.
It has been about 8 years since I left for Nepal to join the Ujeli Care Center for a few weeks. A wonderful project and a great time, so I am happy to share my experience. A small introduction about me: I am a 31-year-old GP with a postgraduate degree in Tropical Medicine/International Health. So far, I have worked in various clinical positions and contexts including refugee camps in Lesbos, the department of infectious diseases at the University hospital of Antwerp, a primary care center in Mayotte, Doctors Without Borders in DRC and currently I am still working in Congo with the Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp. But my first work experience in a LMIC was with Ujeli in Nepal, Pokhara. It inspired to continue with that line of work. Nepal has many assets which make a visit worthwhile: the mountains, the culture, the food, the lovely people, … But what made this month unforgettable was the warm welcome and the commitment of the Koirala family. Many small NGO’s start off with ambitious objectives but fail to deliver results. The beating heart of this project is someone who knows the country and its problems inside out. And that is why the Ujeli project is so successful. Dr. Dinesh knows where the healthcare system is failing and has well defined his priorities: children’s health. The project has defined feasible objectives, targeting infection prevention and primary healthcare for children in a well-defined setting. The project asked us a commitment for crowdfunding prior to the project but these small efforts were fun and very worthwhile when we saw the results. Ujeli care center offered us a bilateral learning experience in a magnificent setting. It was probably the best experience I’ve had in my medical training. I firmly wish the project can continue to grow and deliver though I’m confident that, under Dr. Dinesh expert supervision, it will. Many thanks!

I’m Sajanuka, also known as Nikita in Nepal ;). I’m from The Netherlands and had my elective internship in 2022 in Kathmandu. I had the beautiful opportunity to study abroad for a period of 6 weeks and witness the beautiful culture, nature and people. One of the special people I met was Dr. Dinesh, a paediatric surgeon in the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital in Kathmandu. Sometimes you meet people and their energy speaks louder than words. This surely was one of those people. This doctor makes everyone feel at ease with his funny jokes and kind heart. I felt immediately at home in the surgical department. I especially got touched when he told me about one of his projects: the Ujeli Care Center in Pokhara, to take care of the less fortunate Nepali children. Almost 200 children monthly visit the centre for free advice, treatment, follow-up or education about first aid or hygiene. This story reminds me why I love medicine and helping people and motivates me the most. I look forward to my return to Nepal and join this beautiful project and support Dr. Dinesh.
