Helping Diwash fulfil his potential
Diwash was three years old when he came to Green Pastures Hospital with his mum. He has cerebral palsy and was an unhappy child who often cried and pushed his body into a straight, rigid position. This made it difficult for his mum to carry or settle him.
Staff at Green Pastures helped Diwash to find comfortable ways to sit and he was given a special chair to help him. He was also given a wheelchair for moving around outside. The therapists worked with his mum to find ways to calm and stimulate him, and to help with his feeding.
By the end of his stay at Green Pastures Hospital, Diwash was starting to respond with a smile.
But it doesn't stop there because Diwash and his mum will continue to get support from Green Pastures staff, back in their community.

Green Pastures Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre
Green Pastures Hospital is a place of healing and hope. It was begun as a leprosy hospital and continues to serve patients with leprosy. But its work has expanded to include the treatment of people with other disabilities, especially spinal cord injuries or cerebral palsy.
Nepali and expatriate staff give the patients the medical care that they need. There is also a dedicated team of mentors and counselors who help people come to terms with their situations.
Now, long-term plans have been made so that the care at Green Pastures can not only continue, but also become a shining example for medical care and help set standards in Nepal’s health sector.
Dr Dipak Maharjan, an orthopaedic specialist, is the Medical Director at Green Pastures and Dr Suman Sharma, a Urology specialist and general surgeon, is the Medical Superintendent and Karuna Gurung is the newly appointed Head of Nursing. Mike Smith, a UK ENT surgeon heads up INF’s Ear Centre, a new complex opened in 2016. Dhaka Ram Budha Magar is Operational Director and responsible for developing the site, together with strategies to help the hospital become self-sustaining. Until this is achieved there will still be a great need for external funding.
All of the senior team are Christians and share a common vision, to make Green Pastures a Christ Centred Centre of excellence for disabilities, renowned for its services and for training doctors.
