Since opening in 1957, Green Pastures has worked to restore hope and dignity for the poor and people living with leprosy and disabilities in Nepal.  Many who arrive at Green Pastures’ doors have been rejected by society. The vision is to be a place where those most in need can find healing of body, mind and soul.

Nepal has high prevalence of various types of disability and chronic diseases, such as leprosy. As a result of diseases and/or disabilities, people oftenDSC_0152 low res become the outcasts and some of the most vulnerable people of society – uneducated, unemployed and unwanted. Those who go to Green Pastures for help find it to be a place of new hope and acceptance. They receive medical treatment and care that is simply not available elsewhere.
