Who We Are

Learn about Meg’s Children and how we rescue kids in crisis.

What is Meg's Children Trust Nepal?

Meg’s Children Nepal is an Australian not-for-profit charitable trust that was established in 2005.

Our goal is to support the upbringing of vulnerable and at-risk children in Nepal, by providing for their daily living needs and meeting their right to education.

These necessities, and the children’s health and safety, are therefore enabled solely by funds raised through our trust, which is run by volunteers in the Albury-Wodonga district.

We are proud to say that 95 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to our children in Nepal.

All money raised

for Meg’s Children Nepal and the Siddhi Memorial Foundation goes to these programs.

Partnership with the Siddhi Memorial Foundation

In lasting memory of their son Siddhi who died in a road accident at the age of four, Mr and Mrs Shyamm and Ranjana Dhoubadel founded the Siddhi Memorial Health Service Centre in 1993.

This non-government and not-for-profit organisation provides primary health care services to women and children in need, and support for seniors through an onsite senior citizens home. In addition to the hospital services, Siddhi offers an ongoing Saturday morning clinic offering free consultations, immunisations and family planning services.

The Memorandum

Meg’s Children and the Siddhi Memorial Foundation have been working in close partnership since 2015. A Memorandum of Understanding between these two organisations was signed on the 18th January 2018.

Who is Meg?

Meg’s Children Nepal is named in memory of Meg Ryan, Trish Ryan’s oldest daughter who passed away in 2003 as a result of complications from Spina Bifida. Meg had always taken a great interest in education, and had worked as a teacher’s aide at primary schools in Albury and in Mullengandra. When Meg passed away at age 23, she was studying for a Bachelor of Education at Charles Sturt University. After the loss of Meg, Trish made the decision to travel to Nepal to volunteer, and this is how Meg’s Children started.
