We will be travelling to Nepal with a team of 8 American doctors and 8 volunteers to work alongside a team of Nepalese doctors and nurses , two doctors and six nurses. The team of medical experts will work together to provide basic health check ups, distribute medicines to treat a variety of health conditions and provide reading glasses for those in need. In addition an American and Nepali Gynaecologist will perform check-ups on women in the village. Educational workshops and material will be distributed to help break the silence surrounding menstruation and provide communities with the information needed to manage menstruation in a healthy and dignified way. This will include donating 2,000 reusable menstrual pad kits all made in Nepal by beni Handicrafts.
We ask for your assistance in raising funds to provide as much medical care as possible in the two HERO camps.
