In the difficult to access mountainous region Chabbdi, accessible only by 4-wheel-driven jeep or by foot, are living around 40 000 people. To get medical care they must drive around 2 hours to Pokhara city. In 2010 we started with the construction of a hospital building in the community of Sankhe. For the future we are planning a residential building near the hospital to accommodate the employees. The hospital will take care of about 40,000 inhabitants of the surrounding communities
In the community of Bhackal, a health center (Health Post) was built with an attached pharmacy.
Additional projects such as
- Ambulance services
- Medical examinations
- Health courses
- Laboratory and radiology
- Patient transport and
- Dental treatments
were implemented and are used frequently by the residents.
Sometimes we have offered Health days. On these days we are visited by hundreds of residents of the surrounding communities for medical help and advise.
