I am tremendously proud to announce that eight volunteer practitioners have been selected for the Acupuncture Relief Project's 2010 Nepal clinic. Our volunteers will be working at the Vajra Varahi Healthcare Clinic in Chapagaon Nepal from September 18th 2010 to March 1st 2011, providing over 300 treatment days of medical support to the people of this region. Our team aspires to offer nearly 6000 acupuncture and herbal treatments over this time period.
Nepal's fragile government continues to struggle to maintain control resulting in wide-spread episodes of violence, corruption and economic devastation. We feel strongly that our efforts are beneficial in providing a fundamental human-right of basic health care to a region that is completely without government services. In addition our practitioners will get first hand experience providing primary care in a third world environment. This unique experience helps them build the skills and confidence it takes to provide exemplary and effective care in their own community practices.
Please consider making a cash donation in support of our gifted and generous volunteers.
$10.00 — Provides for 10 people to be treated in our clinic
$20.00 — Pays a local interpreter for one week
$50.00 — Supports one practitioner for one clinic day
$100.00 — Pays for our team's clinic supplies for one day
Think for a moment about how much impact we can have when we can treat up to 120 people for as little as $100.
