The Gurkha Welfare Trust

Trailwalker also raises money for The Gurkha Welfare Trust, which was founded in 1969 when it was realised that thousands of ex-Gurkha servicemen and their widows were living in destitution in the hill villages of Nepal.

Today, The Gurkha Welfare Trust is working in both Nepal and the UK. The focus of its work is caring for the elderly Gurkha soldiers and their widows in Nepal who are dependent on the Trust for a dignified secure old age.

It provides a monthly Welfare Pension, a Winter Fuel Allowance and emergency Hardship grants. It also looks after all their medical needs, from GP care to long-term hospital treatment.
