"Wisdom and compassion in action" Humla Medical Service
Humla Valley of Nepal is one of the most remote and sacred places on earth. Located on the border of Tibet, Humla is the midst of the spectacular Himalayan mountain range; secluded from modern life, it remains home to the ancient spiritual and pre-Buddhist culture of bom. However, due in parts to this isolation, the Humli people confront serious challenges in accessing health care. Trek through the majestic Himalayan Mountain to deliver no-cost, high quality holistic health care to the surrounding villages.
The Humla Medical Service trip offers the opportunity for acupuncturists, naturopaths,midwives, doctors, nurses, herbalists, massage therapists and non-medical volunteers to share their compassion and skills. The trip provide and opportunity to experience meaningful human exchange and to encounter the ancient wisdom traditions of the Humli culture. Non-Medical support volunteers are essential for the success of the clinics and encouraged to join. Participants will have the opportunity to experience the shaman's harvest festival and rituals and receive blessings and prayers of the indigenous healers.
The trip is joyful, but also rugged and strenuous. Participants need to be in good physical shape. The trip is transformative, but requires emotional internal strength as we work intensively in the clinics and travel outside of comfort zones.
Notes: Responsible Treks has successfully organized past 2 years of Medical service trip in co-ordination with Humla fund. Please visit Humla Fund Websites for this year departure. Money is not always our first priority; we care for our people and places.
