Rifleman Dharamsing Tamang’s Story

Many supporters of the Trust will remember Rifleman Dharamsing Tamang’s story. After serving as a Gurkha for 11 years, he faced a life of hardship due to injury and the loss of his home in the Nepal earthquakes in 2015.

Following the disaster, we provided emergency support to Dharamsing and his wife, Doma, who went on to become our first Gurkha pensioners to move into their new, quake-resistant home built by us in February 2016. We recently revisited the couple.


Medical support

Sadly, not long after moving in, 79-year-old Dharamsing’s health worsened. He is now confined to his bed most of the time and relies heavily on Doma’s care.
