Healing & Rebuilding Nepal Together

Dear friends, families, and supporters,

We are a team of enthusiastic medical students and physicians from UC Davis School of Medicine seeking to provide sustainable and compassionate care to underserved and rural communities in Nepal this summer of 2016.

Our Purpose:

From May 19 - June 12, we will be in Kathmandu, the capitol,  and Sindhupalchok, one of Nepal’s least developed rural districts, to bring health care and resources to community members. Our objectives are:

1. Support local health leaders within the Nepalese Health System.

2. Collaborate with Tribhuvan and Kathmandu University students and faculty and learn about the Nepalese Medical Education System.

3. Promote sustainable health and hygiene initiatives at the underserved youth facilities.

4. Support, inform, and empower villagers in Bhotang, Sindhupalchok, on health issues they are most concerned about.

5. Work and grow with our community partners, Hand and Hands Volunteer Society-Nepal (HHVS).


Why We Chose Nepal:

The Nepali Civil War lasted from 1996-2006 and left over 150,000 internally displaced and more than 13,000 dead. This war greatly devastated children with more than 10,000 orphaned, 100,000 forced to flee their villages, and over 26,000 living on the streets. In addition, post-war civil unrest has compounded the surge of orphans within the last 10 years. The overcrowding of many orphanages in Kathmandu has led to poor health and hygiene conditions for this at-risk population.

Seven years ago, second year medical student Jenn Quan went to Nepal as an undergraduate to help rebuild this amazing nation; she not only fell in love with the country but also with the people there. This summer we are returning to further help the communities in Nepal, and with your contributions, we hope we can all go to serve and build up this community.

How YOU Can Help
Your contributions will assist us in purchasing medications, supplies, and equipment for the orphanages and villages we visit. Most importantly, it will help us build a sustainable infrastructure that we hope will be maintained long after we come back home. We assure you that every dollar you donate will go toward helping those in Nepal. Please help us, and spread the word. Together we can change the world.
