‘They used to say, “Give me medicine to kill myself. Don’t give me medicine to heal.” It’s better now’

Eliza Khatri | Lamosanghu, Sindhupalchok

“It was very disheartening in the beginning when I came here. People who had nobody left in their families would be the most depressed. They used to say, ‘Give me medicine to kill myself. Don’t give me medicine to heal. There is no point.’ It’s better these days.¬†There’s been a lot of progress in most cases. Most people’s physical injuries have been healed. I feel better as well.”
