A CHIROPRACTOR is travelling to Nepal to help abandoned children and destitute women, using the unusual method of drama to address their issues.

Aarti Shah, of Goddard End in Stevenage, will fly out to Kathmandu on Saturday, March 27, with three other volunteers to work for just over two weeks at a home called Ghar Sita Mutu - The House with the Heart.

As part of a mission called the Dynamic Heart Project, the four will use dynamic theatre - spontaneous drama to help people understand the underlying issues which run through their lives, inspired by psychodrama, shamanism and systematic therapies.

Workshops will also include sound healing, structural realignment, touch therapies and confidence building.

The volunteers, through fundraising, also hope to be able to buy solar panels to provide continuous electricity at the home.

Mrs Shah, 41, explained that the children at Ghar Sita Mutu have been severely traumatised during their young lives, and that this has been compounded by the fact the home was raided by machete-wielding menaces in November.

She added: "This project is so important to me because I have been working as a chiropractor for 20 years and I have a note in my diary saying if I make it through the first 20 years it will be time to give something back.

"When I was asked to do this it touched a chord."

A concert, compered by early Iron Maiden member Tony Moore, will be held at The Regal Rooms in Hammersmith, London, on Sunday, March 7, to raise money for the Dynamic Heart Project.
