Supporters and useful links
Our local business supporters are key to us being able to continue our work both locally and across the globe. Without them we would never have achieved so much.
Local dentist Dr Kapil Rijal has been a loyal and valuable supporter of LMF for many years. He has attended many of our charitable events, and when the Nepal Earthquake struck we felt it only right to step in and offer our disaster relief experience to him and his family members who still live in Nepal. Dr Rijal took our offer and then stepped up to become very hands on. He set up an incredible support network on the ground in Nepal. He took on the lead role in our Nepal appeal. A team of 21 Doctors, and Nurses flew out to deliver immediate and ongoing aid. Together we raised over £110,000 to help people in need in the remotest parts of Nepal. He wanted to give back to his country in the darkest of days. You can read all about the Nepal Appeal on our dedicated Nepal page here. Dr Rijal and his family still help and support LMF and Nepal today.
Our Founder John May studied at Bath University and decided it was fitting that he provide one or two scholarships at Bath in memory of his daughter Lisa. These scholarships provide further education to students who simply do not have access to the extra funds they need to support them during these important years. Past students have gone on to find employment in some pretty high profile sectors.
