Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
After receiving intensive orientation that covers the general medical system in Nepal, Nepali language, Cultural information and project description volunteers will be escorted to respective placements.

Basically health care volunteers will be placed in rural community health posts where most of the health centers are understaffed. Medical personnel are often reluctant to be posted in these areas due to the lack of transportation and physical equipment. Patients come to health posts in nearby villages for several reasons: because they have no access to well equipped hospitals, because of their belief in traditional medication and because of a lack of transportation.

Volunteers will assist community health personnel in health work such as checking patients, vaccinating, dressing normal injuries, consultations etc. Moreover volunteers can participate in a work camp that is organized by a local womens group, youth club and our organization. Volunteers work 3 to 5 hours a day, 6 days week. The reporting time begin at 9:30 and over at 3 pm.

Due to the high risk involved in health services volunteers must have a background in Health education. Health volunteers must be, doctors, nurses, medical students, midwives, farmacists etc. Individuals who want to learn about hte Nepali medical system can also be involved in the Health program but they will take part as observers, asking questions and studying the Nepali medical system.
