Nyaya Health renovated and opened Bayalpata Hospital in partnership with the government and community over 2 years ago after it had been left empty for nearly 30 years. Despite having treated over 55,000 of the poorest patients in Nepal for free over the last 2 years, our clinical facilities still don’t have tiled floors, which are essential to create a safe, sterile, and dignified health care environment.
We are determined to bring change to Bayalpata Hospital this November, one tile at a time. Nyaya means ‘the realization of just systems’ in Nepali. Make this November one for justice in health by supporting #nov4nyaya. Here’s how you can bring dignity to our staff and patients this month:
1. Become a member of Nyaya’s online community at http://twitter.com/nyayahealth or http://causes.com/nyayahealth. For every follower they get during November, Nyaya will donate $1 to tile to their clinical facilities in Nepal.
2. Turn your November birthday into a celebration of generosity via http://wishes.causes.com. It’s really easy, and tiling a hospital in rural Nepal might be one of the most fascinating birthday requests your friends and family will ever hear. We promise that they’ll love it. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will give you the step by step.

+ $10 = 1 square meter of tile, which translates to dignity, sterility, and better health care
+ 100% of your donations are going to this effort (we will even pay off the credit card transaction fees — seriously!)
+ We are going to prove this for you with pictures of our newly tiled facilities in early 2012.
+ Nyaya Health is one of the most transparent organizations in all of Nepal – we even publish all of our line by line budget expenditures at http://wiki.nyayahealth.org/w/page/4682609/Budget
