Virginia Dixon

Virginia Dixon is the founding Trustee of Langtang Valley Health Australia, a clinic/health post in Langtang that employed two Nepalese nurses. The initiative began in 2012 to organize donors to “sponsor” nurses and health workers to ensure skilled staff stay in the rural region. The Langtang Valley Health Center has since ceased operation after the 2015 earthquake, as the clinic was destroyed and both nurses died. Virginia is focused on rebuilding effortsin Nepal via the organization Sustainable Steps, and works at the National Capital Private Hospital in Woden, Australia. She has been travelling to Nepal for 20 years.
