Eduardo Sanz Solana, who lives in Barcelona, has generously donated the funds raised from his New York Marathon run.  This was his first marathon which he says was an amazing experience.

To add additional motivation for people to donate he set a contest.  60 people took part and the winner of the contest kindly gave the whole prize as an additional donation.  Through Eduardo's efforts a total of 1,300Euros was raised.

Two new reports on Human Resources for Health

July 2013

Two new reports have been produced by a project implemented by BNMT and co-funded by the EU. 

For the report on the Situation Analysis of Policies and Practices on Human Resources for Health in Nepal the research was undertaken in 2011 to prepare a strong foundation for evidence based advocacy on Human Resources for Health.

The private sector in Nepal has emerged in recent years as a substantial force in the production and utilisation of Human Resources for Health.  However, there is a lack of an effective co-ordination mechanism between the public and private sectors.  This has made it difficult to maximise the gains for better health impacts.  With this background the Situation Analysis of Human Resources for Health in Public and Private Sectors in Nepal was conducted to review existing global and national Human Resources for Health policies, to identify gaps and make recommendations.



Hannah Hayes runs the marathon to raise funds for BNMT

May 2013

Hannah first heard about BNMT through her father, who is a keen walker and having been to Nepal many times has seen the impact of the charity first-hand.  A couple of years ago he went on an ambitious walk across Europe and through this began raising money for the charity. (John Hayes' fundraising walk)

"I'm not much of a walker, instead I like to run.  I had done a few 10km runs before and one half marathon a few years ago, but never a marathon.  As a runner, I saw it as the ultimate challenge and always wanted to be able to say that I'd completed one.  With this personal challenge in mind I also saw it as an excellent opportunity to help my Dad reach his ambitious fundraising target for BNMT and to speak to my own network of friends and colleagues about the charity.

"I was overwhelmed at the support I had when training and the generous donations from my friends, family and colleagues.  Many people were particularly generous as they knew it was a great cause.

"With four months of training through rain, wind and snow the race day itself was a beautiful sunny Spring day (it must have been the first of the year).  I ran non-stop for four and a half hours until I crossed the finish line.  It was an amazing feeling and worth the pain of my feet and toes the following days!  I'm really thrilled to have been able to raise over £1,000 for BNMT's Community Based Child Nutrition Programme and am grateful to everyone who supported me along the way."

A report on the Community Based Child Nutrition Programme supported by Hannah and John Hayes can be found on our Reports page.
