FRIENDS OF HIMALAYAN CHILDREN

Empowerment through education

"Our volunteer administration ensures nearly 95% of funds raised go directly to supporting disadvantaged children in regional Nepal."

NEWSLETTERS & ANNUAL REPORTS

To keep you in touch with the functions of FHC we produce a quarterly newsletter highlighting our efforts and achievements throughout the year. These are PDF files and you can download these by clicking on the links below the images.

Annual reports summarise the  financial health of the charity and highlight the people behind the charity and their functions. FHC is administered by volunteers, except for essential financial services as required by law.
