2014 Fall Medical Dental Trek is now underway in the Ganesh Himal

Fall 2014 Medical Dental Trek
Medical volunteers, family and friends are now trekking with HHC from Nov 1 to 17 in a remote and non-touristy part of mountainous Nepal to teach village health providers to treat village patients in some of the most remote and beautiful mountains in the world.

Physicians, dentists, nurses, PA and also other volunteers--including family members--are now trekking in a remote region of the Himalayas to support and train local health providers and help them treat hundreds of villagers who have little or no health care. They will be supported by a team of over twenty five medical and trek staff and about fifty to one hundred porters. Everything is portered in. The highest point on the trek will be around 15,000 feet, and trekkers will see some of the beautiful high peaks in the Himalayas. Medical work will be empirical at best with little diagnostic support. 

All net proceeds from the handicraft sales are used to fund primary health care, medical and educational projects, giving to those involved in the production process a sense of pride that comes by helping and sustaining many others, in even greater need than themselves. Jeevankala
