Village Nepal and the Diaries of Gwen Coventry

£25.00

Product description

Melbourne nurse Gwen Coventry worked in Nepal for 20 years as a Christian missionary. When she walked the hills of Palpa district in Nepal for days and weeks, taking health services to 200 villages she was welcomed by people who had never seen a Westerner before. She lived in the remote hill village of Bojha among the Magar people. Over 10 years she and her colleagues saw the infant mortality rate drop from 55 deaths per 100 live births of children under five, to nine per 100.

Gwen Coventry's life is told against momentous change. The rise and fall of the Hindu Kingdom, the introduction of modern medicine, public health and rural development, the birth of an indigenous Christian church, are all background to Gwen Coventry's life of adventure and self sacrifice in Nepal.
