Throughout my 11-plus year career as an Acupuncturist, I have made it a point to make 'giving back' a part of my practice. And now I embark on a new level of that. In March and April of 2017 I'll be in Nepal working in small villages helping the Nepali learn Primary Healthcare and Acupuncture. You see, there is almost no primary care outside of the larger cities of Nepal. The Acupuncture Relief Project, which I will be a part of, is creating local clinics for people with various medical issues. The goal is for the clinics to be self sufficient in 2020. In order to do that we need your help. I am asking you to donate now so we may help the Nepali help themselves. Your donation goes straight to Nepal, there is no staff in the United States that are on salary. All monies go to Nepal and provide the following:
- Provide primary health care to villagers in the rural area, where medical help is inaccessible.
- Provide fair and meaningful employment to young Nepali people in the villages, who will work as our interpreters and cooks. Gainful employment provides an opportunity for young people to improve their own lives and that of their families, as well as stay away from drugs and labor abuse.
- Provide a valuable opportunity for Nepali acupuncture students to gain clinical experience, hence training them to be competent and confident practitioners to help their local people.
Here are some direct examples of what your donation can do:
- $1 pays for one patient's treatment for a day
- $20 pays for an interpreter for 10 days
- $50 pays for one practitioner's clinic supplies for one week
- $100 pays all of our clinic expenses for one day
