Education & Health Nepal isn’t just a volunteer organisation but a group of friends who care about the people of Nepal and want to help in as many ways as possible. One way in particular is coordinating with other organisation’s to successfully complete projects designed to make the lives of communities better there.
The Gerkhu medical centre was created by Building bridges World-wide and our organisation when it was Experience Himalayan Nepal who provided the project, in country support and arranging for the monthly funding by the Nepali government to cover the costs of medicine and staff there.
To date EHN places volunteers there and aims to use it as a base to launch mobile health clinics for villages further up the valley.
Please note the level of care is very basic because it’s a rural medical centre so EHN wants to improve this by actually creating our own Mobile health clinic funded by trekking and staffed by visiting Doctors. Please follow our future project of the Mobile Health clinic for more details.
Please note there is so much more we can do here and higher up into the Himalayas.
If you have medical experience and want to help let us know.
