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 fund the implementation of the program in the first half of Province 1 (58 municipalities).
The government of Province 1 together with the 58 municipalities agreed to fund €5.2 million.
In December 2019 the Hofstee Foundation joined us as funding partner with committed funding for 3 years. They renewed their financial support for another 3 years in 2022. Also, the Swiss foundation Provictimis has funded the program in the period 2020-2022.
In the years 2020 -2022 more new funding partners joined us, like the Quatfass foundation and a private person, while other smaller partners, like Stichting Kinderfonds van Dusseldorp and Stichting t Bosje, continued their support.
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.
