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
Nepal is one of the least developed countries in the world and suffers from extreme levels of poverty, particularly in rural areas.
We provide humanitarian assistance unobtainable from government or other organizations. We accomplish our mission by creating and supporting programs that provide healthcare services, education programs, and income generation opportunities.
HHC started in 1992 by focusing on the Dhading region in the Ganesh Himal, one of the most rugged and remote areas of Nepal, far from the popular trekking routes. These villagers were among the most needy in Nepal.
In 2004 HHC significantly expanded its investment in Nepal by opening the Megh Bahadur Parajuli Community Hospital in the town of Ilam in eastern Nepal. This small hospital serves a region of approximately 300 thousand people.
HHC encourages local participation and involvement in all of its programs to ensure sustainability of benefits. Above all, HHC strives to help people help themselves.
