Three Dutch foundations (Ineke Feitz Stichting, Stichting Weeshuis der Doopsgezinden and Stichting Perspectief) and the UBS Optimus Foundation have committed themselves at the start of 2019 to 50% of the total funding need of this program in the coming 5 years. In December 2019 the Hofstee Foundation joined us as funding partner with committed funding for 3 years. This commitment served as leverage for the allocation of funds by the Nepalese Government (€10 million).
In the year 2020 a new anonymous funding partner joined us, while other earlier smaller partners, like Stichting Kinderfonds van Dusseldorp and Cornelia Stichting agreed to fund the start of local physio centres in 2020.
The Swiss foundation Provictimus has joined us as funding partner and committed itself to the funding of the preparations of phase 2 of the Replication plan.
Stichting ‘t Bosje is a committed funding partner in the pilot district of Ilam.
The Karuna Foundation is extremely happy with the committed support of all our funding partners and their innovative funding of this challenging change in the health care system in Nepal.
