On Monday 30 September 2013, the British Ambassador to Nepal, Mr Andy Sparkes, visited the BRINOS Ear Health Community Service (BEHCS) at the Fate-Bal Eye Hospital, Nepalgunj.
He was greeted by Dr Adhikari, the Medical Director of the eye hospital and Mr Puran Tharu, the Senior Community Ear Assistant and his team. Currently, they work out of two rooms in the old eye hospital.
The Ambassador was shown a display of activities undertaken by the Community Ear Assistants with charts of the volume of work done and photographs of the ear surgery camps. He was given one of the prevention of ear disease posters.
