About Us

Ear Care Nepal (ECN) is a voluntary organization established in 2013 with the aim of “Prevention of Deafness and Promotion & Conservation of Hearing in Nepal”. All the Executive Members work purely on charity basis without any financial benefit; they have dedicated their time to help in fight with deafness in Nepal. Chairperson, Dr. Milan Maharjan, a consultant ENT Surgeon left her permanent job as Assistant Professor at Kathmandu Medical College to fulfill her dream of helping the underprivileged people of Nepal suffering from hearing problems. A group of dedicated ENT surgeons and intellectuals held hand together to overcome the burden of hearing disability in school going children of Nepal. 

Since it's establishment in September 2013 ECN had been conducting school based ear health programs in community schools and Buddhist Monastic schools of Nepal. School Ear Health Program consists of screening of children for ear diseases and hearing loss, detail hearing evaluation of the children with suspected hearing loss and delivery of primary ear care education to all the childrens/ teachers for prevention of deafness. Till date ECN has screened over 43,000 children for ear diseases and deafness from 290 community school and Buddhist Monastic schools and have conducted major ear surgeries in 435 children for restoration of hearing all free of cost.   

We are also partnered with Samsara Nepal, our sister association in Basque Country, Spain. All the funds they raise are benefited to Ear Care Nepal. http://samsaranepal.org
