Dear All,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you through the updated Richmond Fellowship website: www.richmond.org.np . I feel honored to be part of the Richmond Fellowship Nepal – RFN Journey to the community and its success goes to all Richmond Family: Executive Board and Staff Members, Clients and most important ones are those  who have been recovered and have been back in their normal life. Late Dirgha Raj Koirala from Nepal and Mr. Ramratan Uppadhya, Dr. Biswo Bandu Sharma, Dr. Karuna Onta, Dr. Jyoti Tuladhar, Dr. Murari Prasad Regmi, Mr. Kedar Rayamaghi, Mr. Bhola Shrestha, Mr. Kedar Sharma, Kedar Bhakta Mathema, Shambhu Thapa initiated the organization in Nepal and Ms Elly Janson  from the Richmond Fellowship the UK.   The founding members have made immense contributions to making a vibrant organization. Thanks go to all of them.

RFN is a Non- Governmental Organization (NGO) working in the area of mental health and preventing substance abuse and its treatment since 1996 A.D.  Initially, RFN was established as a Drop -In Center (DIC) for male drug users. RFN has conducted a first of its kind of research on Women Substance Users. RFN promotes Bio-psychosocial Model introducing a "Peer Recovery Guidance" modality based on the "Therapeutic Community" (T.C.) approach since October 2001.

I am especially in high spirits that RFN has expanded its services to drug treatment and Harm Reduction Services in Kathmandu, and it has extended to Pokhara, Biratnagar, Kailali and Chitwan targeting both male and female substance users. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to my distinguish seniors and colleagues who contributed RFN immensely in various fronts.

In our 17 years of journey, RFN has received tremendous help from individuals, civil society organizations, and Government of Nepal. I would like to thank all the individuals and organizations for their kind support directly and indirectly. I also like to thank UNODC, UNDP, WHO, UNAIDS, FHI, Care Nepal and Save the Children for their support.

I wish all the Executive Board Members and staffs of Richmond Fellowship Nepal for their team spirit and work offering hands on the way to responding the burning issues of substance abuse, primary health care, HIV prevention and various training programs  through establishing quality service in the country.

Thank you for your patience. Please let us know if there is any way we can be of assistance to you.

With best regards.

Dr. Raghab Kishor Bhattaraya
