The Gurkha Welfare Trust works in both Nepal and the UK. The focus of its work is caring for the elderly Gurkha soldiers and their widows in Nepal who are dependent on the Trust for a secure old age. It provides a monthly Welfare Pension, a winter fuel allowance and emergency hardship grants. It also looks after all their medical needs, from GP care to long-term hospital treatment. For those unable to live independently, the Trust offers residential care. The Trust also delivers vital community aid to rural villages in Nepal, installing clean water systems and sanitation, running mobile medical camps and building and refurbishing schools. In the UK, the Trust continues its support, providing advice and information to Gurkhas who have chosen to make their home there. In all it does, in Nepal and the UK, The Gurkha Welfare Trust strives to honour the generations of friendship and distinguished service offered by the Gurkhas to the British Crown.
