How was HDCS started?
The story of HDCS is closely linked to the personal journey of the founder and Executive Director, Dr. Tirtha Bahadur Thapa. At the age of 15, Dr. Thapa's father passed away which played a vital role in bringing about two of the most significant changes in his life--his faith and his aspiration.
Growing up in a Hindu family, tradition required Dr. Thapa and his brothers to ignite the fire in which their father's body was cremated. This act compelled Dr. Thapa to ask questions about life and death which ultimately led him to find answers in Christianity.
At the same time, Dr. Thapa understood access to basic medical services probably would have saved his father's life. This instilled the desire to become a medical doctor because without such facilities, countless people like his father would fall victim to avoidable deaths.
Unfortunately, financial and circumstantial obstacles made it impossible for Dr. Thapa to pursue that line of study. Instead, at the age of 16 he left his village in east Nepal and moved to Kathmandu. There, he worked various odd end jobs to survive until he became engaged in the church.
After adopting the faith, Dr. Thapa rose quickly as a young leader. He became active within the Christian community but in due time, Dr. Thapa felt Christians were called to serve the poor and needy not only through evangelization but through services.
Thus, in 1991, HDCS was established as a Christian NGO with the aim of providing care to those who needed it the most.
Dr. Thapa may not have become a medical doctor, but through faith and hard work his dream of providing medical services to the poor and marginalized has surpassed what he had ever imagined.
Now, through HDCS, hundreds of thousands of people in Nepal have access to affordable quality health care, transformational education, and are learning the skills they need to improve their lives.
