We would like to let everyone know that we are currently accepting donations for supplies including medication, birthing kits, glasses, etc. to take to Nepal with us when we travel there for our April 2015 Medical Camp.
The medical camp will be held this year from April 15 through April 30, 2015 in a remote village outside the Pokera District of Nepal and is projected to serve 2,000 3,000 people that would likely not otherwise see a doctor.
In addition to the medical supplies we mentioned above. We are also taking donations to pay the actual medical team in Nepal. For each doctor we send from the United States we must have a doctor from Nepal side-by-side with them. Those doctors make $25 per day and are responsible for their own meals and lodging. It is such a reasonable fee, and we are glad to pay their salaries.
The doctors that arrive from One World One Heart Foundation work together with the doctors from Nepal sharing knowledge, techniques and more. Then, we donate all of our equipment to the doctors in Nepal for their offices so they can continue to serve the people of Nepal.
We have approximately five doctors going from the United States along with several midwives. We are very excited to announce that in addition to the medical camp, we will also be selecting the site for the birthing center we are planning to build; a future endeavor that we know would help women and children in the area so much.
Also, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our healthcare professionals who donate their time and pay for their trip from their personal finances. These are in kind donations that we appreciate so very much. In fact, without them we would never even be able to do these camps!
