Nina Murray
Australian Volunteer Work in Nepal

Nina Murray is on an Australian Volunteer assignment in Nepal . Her assignment title is '' occupational therapy trainer '' for a local NGO Karuna Foundation Nepal ( KFN ) . During her most recent trip , she went to Sunrasi for wheelchair distribution when her organisation partnered with our own Wheelchairs for Kids organisation . They had received 166 wheelchairs , and during her time in Sunrasi she was able to fit six children with wheelchairs . Nina will tell us how these wheelchairs made such a huge and lasting impact on many family lives including one 11year old girl , Ishmita , who was born with osteogenesis imperfecta .... Ishmita had previously never attended school because of the difficulty in getting to school without a wheelchair and not having the appropriate desk . Nina will tell Ishmita's story of the changes in her life as a result of now having a wheelchair .
