Specific actions

Depending on emergency and / or specific demands we are also involved in several one-off projects i.e. :

Ophtalmology (University Hospital of Dhulikhel)

Financial support to the ophthalmology department for the acquisition of medical equipment for the visual acuity control campaigns (screening camp) in the various health centres of the university hospital (23 centres) and schools.

Financial support for surgical camps.

Kharikhola

Kharikhola is a small village located in Solukhumbu, 2050m above sea level. In 2011 it took us 1 day of driving and 5 days of trekking (7-8h per day) to reach there. Formerly located on the road to Everest base camp, this village, lost in the mountains, counts about 2 000 people. Its clinic is nevertheless the only clinic in the region and serves about 20,000 people.

Action Kharikhola, (www.kharikhola.org), a swiss NGO we know well, has supported the health center since 2001 and we are helping out when needed, for example through providing additionnal material (X ray machine), camps etc.

Since the earthquakes, the health center, already fragile through landslides, needs to be completely rebuilt
