BENEFITING: JRM Foundation
In the Solukhumbu region of Nepal, two days walking distance from the nearest airport connecting it to the outside world, is a village called Waku with a clinic struggling to meet the needs of its 165 home community. The clinic has no running water, minimal electric, no plumbing, and only the most basic medical equipment. Medicine is hard to come by, and depends almost exclusively on the generosity of outsiders to obtain. Without the clinic, villagers are left with very few resources to meet their health needs.
Some of the requests made by the village leaders and nurse included an IV pole, mattesss for the beds in the clinic, more medications, and funds to fix and improve the outhouse. I have recently been informed by this nurse that medication supplies are very low.
My friend's Gokul Thapa and Dr. Fahim Rahim, in conjunction with the JRM Foundation, have been working hard to support the clinic. The funds raised will be given to Gokul Thapa to buy medication and supplies as seen fit with the collaboration of village leaders and the nurse. Supporting the clinic this way is a unique opportunity to see your money go directly into the hands of people who will use it effectively for it's intended purpose. There are no overhead costs, or middle men taking a cut of what is raised. Any amount you're willing to give really does go a long way. Thank you.
