BRINOS Funding and Donors

(BRINOS is a registered charity in the United Kingdom, no.800453)

Our work depends entirely on charitable donations.

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.
