Help us bring “Little Suns” to Nepal
Nomads Clinic is proud to support this important project to bring light and health to the people of the Himalayas.
Point person on this project is Dr. Charles McDonald, a pulmonary physician from San Francisco who joined us in 2012. He was moved by the prevalence of lung disease, caused in large part by the use of open indoor fires for heat and light. With the support of ‘little suns’ and generous donations from many we hope to take several hundred solar powered lights to the deep regions of the Himalayas..Donations: You may contribute to this project by sending a check made out to Upaya Zen Center. Please write “Little Suns Project” in the memo field, and send it to:
Upaya Zen Center / 1404 Cerro Gordo Road / Santa Fe, NM / 87501
Thank you for considering a more generous donation. In order to take 250 little suns, we need to raise $2200.
