INF Ear Hospital and Training Centre

We are always keen to encourage donors and sponsors for this project and will readily acknowledge all donors who request it on this site. Acknowledgement may include company logos, brief text about involvement and photos of key personnel. Donations may be financial or ‘in kind’ such as medical equipment, practical voluntary work or commitment to visit and teach.

We are particularly indebted to the Swiss team SON (Stiftung Ohrchirurgie Nepal), which has raised from many major and minor donors the majority of the funding for the Ear Hospital and Training Centre, and also been a principal sponsor of the Ear Camps for many years. SON has much useful information on it’s Swiss webpages

SON in Switzerland, EAN (Ear Aid Nepal) in the UK and the INF (International Nepal Fellowship, which is based in Nepal but has linked INF groups in many countries, particularly in Europe and Australasia) are linked through MoU (Memoranda of Understanding) in their joint efforts to support the Ear Hospital with it’s training and outreach work, including Ear Camps.

Donors or sponsors are urged to contact us for further information.

The Swiss Donor Team

Dr Lukas Eberle, an ENT/ORL/HNO consultant surgeon in Brunnen, Switzerland is a much valued long term supporter and friend of ear camps. He has joined us himself many times over the years. He has also encouraged a large number of valued Swiss and German colleagues to volunteer.

In 2007 Dr Lukas Eberle founded SON (Stiftung Ohrchirugie Nepal), a charity whose aims are to fund the cost of the Ear Camps and the building of the Ear Hospital in Pokhara.
