Meri Stop Community Hospital has been offering wide range of different medical services, including gynecology, orthopedics and family planning services. However, due to the lack of medical equipment, it was difficult for the hospital to diagnose diseases and provide timely treatment.

It also believes that the support will contribute towards further enhancing the friendship between the peoples of Japan and Nepal," said a press release.
