Construction of Health post for the Chepang Community of Kalitaar, Chitwan,Nepal
In 2018, the Chepang community approached KEEP with the aim of seeking support in developing a community birthing and general health centre. KEEP developed a partnership with Sante Sans Frontiere (SSF) to bring this project to fruition. In March 2019, SSF visited KEEP’s office and later visited Chepang village at Kalitaar. A free health camp was organized at Kalitaar from 21st-23rd March of 2019. It was attended by 225 community members. At the same time, the foundation was laid for the Chepang Health Post. The pillar work was completed last November.
