Spreading Hope one Smile at a time.
“Smile for Hope” is dedicated to addressing the needs of children battling cancer in remote and forgotten parts of Nepal.
Apart from the various disaster relief programmes we conducted during the aftermath of the devastating 2015 earthquake, it has been our mission since the beginnings of “Smile for Hope” Foundation in 2012, to support children from the remote parts of Nepal, who fight illness and disease, mainly cancer, without the right support system to ensure their healing. We are therefore building the “Smile for Hope” health care center – a “Home away from Home” in Kathmandu. This is a place where children can stay with their parents while undergoing their treatment in hospital. A safe, clean and warm environment where their emotional, psychological, nutritional and generally physical needs are met, where they can play with other children who share their experience and where they get the chance to study with qualified teachers.
We are currently raising funds for both the care center and specifically for a little girl named Manika who is fighting leukemia and needs urgent support. For more information please visit her page
