NepalBuilding Medical Clinic
This charity holiday is a great project for international development in Nepal and the aim is to build a small medical clinic in a rural area near the Everest region, as part of a very long term project we have been developing with our charity Moving Mountains for nearly twenty years now. We're looking for a group of motivated people who will carry out fundraising up to the project capital cost and then travel to Nepal and help to implement it. It's hard work though! Building techniques in the mountains include dry stone walling and using slate collected from the valley floor.
As you can see from the photo's on our Moving Mountains website, the shell of the clinic and the roof is almost completed, which means the remaining work that needs funded to make the clinic operational is the finishing work on the inside (ceilings, floors, glass in the windows, doors, painting, etc), male and female toilets built next to the clinic and medical supplies and equipment and furniture.
We welcome interest from individuals and groups to make up the project team. There are two costs involved with our International Development trips a) your own land based trip costs and b) the specific project costs that the team will need to raise for the project to be undertaken.
Ideally a team of up to 15 people would be perfect, and we will provide all the homestay accommodation and meals in the village, allowing you to experience traditional Sherpa hospitality. We have been doing this for many years, and we have all the safety issues covered, and we use our own company in Nepal to carry out the logistics. Moving Mountains also has it's own NGO based in Nepal, so the visiting team will truly be working with local people carrying out the aims of an international charity.
