2011 Fall Medical Trek

$0 0

The mission of Himalayan HealthCare (HHC) is to create sustainable development programs in the remote areas of Nepal that will improve the quality of life for its people. Himalayan HealthCare achieves its mission by providing primary healthcare, community education, and income generation programs that enable people to be self-supporting in the long-term.

The medical and dental treks are a critical component of the sustainability of our programs. Funds raised through this team will go directly to the cost of the medical trek, including medications, the trek guides, the employment of local porters (men and women), and to sustain Himalayan HealthCare projects in rural Nepal.

The funds raised through each team member will go towards trek fees for your team member. Half of the fees are used to directly support treatment of medical conditions discovered during the trek, such as medications to treat infections, supplies, and life-saving operations. Any additional donations raised beyond the fees will be used to support continued Himalayan HealthCare programs in the region such as latrine building, women's empowerment, and supporting teachers' salary and education.
