Help Ashok get treated!

Ashok Shrestha, 54, is from Kathmandu, Nepal. He lives on his own and has no family. He suffers from Neurofibromatosis, which is genetically inherited and carry a high possibility of tumour formation.

As you may have seen in the picture, Ashok has these tumors on his face which has changed his life. An educated man, who worked for the government of Nepal, and then started his own business of teaching ICT, is now unemployed and struggling to survive.

After 4 failed surgeries, Ashok has got an offer from Dr. McKinnon who is  at Presence Saint Josesh Hospital in Chicago, USA. The treatment is going to cost £25,000 and the £5000 will go towards Ashok’s travel, medication and other expenses during this treatment. I assure you that all funds rasied will go towards Ashoks treatment. 

We’d like to help Ashok get this treatment, and help him  as soon as we can, because together, even if it’s just one life, we can all make a difference.
