HEARTS IN THE HIMALAYAS
- Award Winning Video.
WHO WE ARE
Himalayan HealthCare is a small nonprofit organization founded in 1992 that focuses on grass roots interventions to directly impact Nepalis living in impoverished and remote mountain areas of Nepal. Our board of directors all serve on a volunteer basis, and the only paid staff are Nepalis working on the ground. The organization has many international medical professionals and students who serve as volunteers.
WHO WE SERVE
Poverty in Nepal is concentrated in rural villages and among ethnic minorities and lower castes. HHC partners with some of the most impoverished and marginalized people in the world, working in remote and isolated northern Dhading villages of Ruby Valley Rural Municipality. Women, Indigenous Tamang, and Dalit community members are at the center of our work.
TOGETHER WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
