We are a team of committed volunteers who make an annual month-long journey into the most remote regions of the Himalayas and Tibetan Plateau to provide medical and humanitarian aid. We train local healthcare providers and meet the healthcare needs of those who live in these isolated mountain communities.
How We Serve
- Providing training to locals responsible for assisting with health care in remote villages
- Collaboration with and training for traditional Tibetan and Nepali medical practitioners
- Providing clinics to serve the specific needs of women, girls, and elders.
- And much more...
