Himalayan Healthcare (HHC)

scout ob/gyn mission to Ilam 2009

Specially prepared Ilam program in hand, I board Buddha Air with Sudarshan of HHC and we fly with the Himalayan range snowcapped above the clouds to Bhadrapur to lunch under a shade trade at a small hotel while waiting for our driver.

The road to Ilam at sunset is lined with great sights: a goat walking a boy, a girl walking a cow, mustard fields, poinsettia trees, trucks with colored headlights, bamboo stands, roadside fires, haystacks the size of houses, marigolds with no leaves, dust-coated palm fronds, hairy pigs, dirty dogs, no cats, men smoking and staring, women working, wild saris strewn on clotheslines, the fat orange sun obscured by brown mist, the hairpin turns, higher and higher we climb out of the hot dusty plain.

The Megh Baradur Parajuli Community Hospital (MBPCH) staff greeted me with marigold and a very long white scarf and a gave me a grand tour of the hospital which is amazingly well equipped. The courtyard in the middle is serene and beautiful. At dinner in the canteen there is lively conversation about patients seen in the last 24 hours. Tomorrow Saturday patients start at 9 am.

Dear Friends

I am associated with Himalayan HealthCare. Inc (himalayan-healthcare.org).

Recently we have organized a medical camp in Siddhithumka and Sangrumba villages of eastern Nepal from 27 to 29 October 2009. The three days camp (Medical Trek) was successful with the help of other 16 friends. Now, I and my friend Tim have been working at the Dr. Megh Bahadur Parajuli Community Hospital, Singfring, Ilam Municipality ward 8. HHC (Himalayan HealthCare) has been supporting this hospital since 2004. This hospital is on its way to be self sustained with the help of local community.

Hope you enjoy the pictures and visit our web site. We heartly welcome volunteers to our mission and program.

Best regards
