ANWA Donate


The Basic Free Medical Clinic is now part of the Combined Federal Campaign

Over the past seven years, ANWA has been providing free basic medical services through the Basic Free Medical Clinic, especially to those who don't have health insurance.  All of the services are provided by Dr. Maheswor Baidya, a volunteer doctor, and several volunteer nurses and other staff who are dedicated to serving those who have no access to medical care. 

During the past year ANWA submitted an application to receive funds from the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).  Late in Summer 2014 we learned that the Clinic was approved as a participating CFC Charity.  Now that the Basic Free Medical Clinic has been approved, Federal employees can designate their contributions through the CFC directly to the Medical Clinic.  For more information about the Medical Clinic, click on the right side of the menu bar at the top of the page, Basic Free Medial Clinic.  It will direct you to more information about the clinic and ways you can support it through your contributions to the CFC.  You can also click to see the Clinic Brochure.

The ANWA Medical Clinic designation number is CFC #89887.   


Go to the CFCNCA website to donate now.  The CFC fundraising event runs now through December, 2014.

Governor Timothy M. Kaine

Together with the Nepalese origin Americans and hundreds of new immigrants who are in the US through Diversity Visa (DV) program, experience a lot of confusion and sufferings in their day-to-day lives. They always seek support and direction. We, through ANWA, extend required services to them; however, we do not have expertise to handle all cases. Therefore, we coordinate and network with different DC based South Asian organizations that have expertise in different sectors so that we can refer the clients to the specialized organizations for specific service.
