FONAI OUTREACH PROGRAMS
Child Development Society – Nepal. (CDS)
FONAI members have established strong links with Nepali NGO’s. One of these is the Child Development Society an NGO whose primary goal is to contribute to the Nepali government initiative to ensure the rights of the child.
In 2017 FONAI was privileged to facilitate donations for this group from the Rotary Club of Blackwood who sponsored a Health camp for the families in the local area. This event is hosted by CDS for mothers and babies 3-4 times a year. Volunteer doctors and nurses do regular health checks, provide medication where necessary and refer to hospitals as needed. Each health camp has a different emphasis e.g. Dental, Growth and Nutrition, Respiratory, and Orthopedics.
Social Workers Association of Nepal. (SWAN)
FONAI also assisted in the funding of the recovery efforts for victims of the 2017 monsoon floods in Southern Nepal. We worked closely with social worker Sanjeev Dahal and SWAN to provide funding for relief teams of medical workers and supplies to work in the affected areas.

FONAI has formed a strong partnership with Adelaide NGO South Pacific School Aid, (SPSA) an organisation which recycles educational books to send to developing countries.
