Alan and Megan Barker joined BMS in 2000. Their initial overseas placement was with United Mission to Nepal (2000-2004) in Kathmandu where Alan worked in management and Megan as an occupational therapist. They returned to Nepal in 2007 to work with International Nepal Fellowship (INF) in Surkhet. Alan worked in management and donor relations, training local staff. Megan developed rehabilitation services, expanding the work beyond leprosy to include other disabilities, working alongside and training Nepalese therapists. Since 2017 Alan and Megan have been living and working in Pokhara. Alan is donor and funding co-ordinator and Megan works in the field of OT. Alan and Megan have three children who were in Nepal with them initially but are now adults and have settled with their families in the UK, Vietnam and Switzerland.
