Every morning between 8.30 and 9.30 am there is a rush of small nuns converging on the Clinic. They are lining up in the treatment room, to have their small and large ailments looked after. The ailments range from small scratches and abrasions, to a range of childhood diseases such as mumps, chicken pox, and a head fungus that is widespread in this part of the world. Cases of TB, typhoid fever, hepatitis and similar infections diseases are also occasionally occurring. But with a bunch of kids with too much energy, broken bones are a much more regular occurence.

The Nunnery clinic is staffed by two nuns, with a doctor visiting once a week. The manager of the clinic is a trained nurse. Before being accepted into the nunnery all newcomers  undergo a health assessment . Once they passed this, they receive some common childhood vaccinations as well as rabies, tetanus and menigintis vaccination.  For serious cases sick nuns are taken to a nearby hospital. One of the nuns will stay with the patient to assist with the care, and arrange for food. (In Nepal, hospitals don't provide food for the patients.)
