About Karma Thalo Foundation
Karma Thalo Foundation’s goal is to improve the health of the people of Nepal. Founded by a small group of both medical and non-medical volunteers, our primary focus is on serving the remote villages and residents along the Indigenous Peoples Trail. We organize and operate multi-day clinics providing immediate medical, dental and vision care.
Karma Thalo Foundation works with the local residents, regional medical personnel and a Nepali NGO by the same name. This provides the unique advantage of not only being sanctioned and welcomed by the government of Nepal, but also provides ongoing cooperation with local village leaders, doctors and regional clinics. We share data and assessments and determine needs for future “medical trek” clinics.
Want to Join Our Mission?
We are searching for health care volunteers and non health care volunteers to deliver care. Clinic hours are long and trekking to clinic locations is physically demanding, but rewarding. Volunteers must cover their own travel and trekking costs as we believe that all funds donated to Karma Thalo Foundation go directly to the people we serve.
We began in western Nepal in 2011 with a health camp in the remote village of Tilche with a team that provided dental, pediatric, geriatric, maternal and general preventative medicine to nearly 700 residents. The tremendous success of the outreach, and the needs of other remote and inaccessible villages, motivated us to grow and reach out to all corners of Nepal.

Near and Dear to Our Hearts – In memory of Christopher
Christopher’s Fund was established in 2013 to honor the memory of Christopher J. Grimaud, a guy with a big heart and a wonderful spirit. Christopher died in an automobile accident while attending the University of Mississippi. With Christopher’s Fund we have been able to purchase and maintain three ambulances to provide medical transport for children adults living along the remote Indigenous Peoples Trail. As few people have cars to travel the eight hour drive to the hospitals in Kathmandu, this has become their life line. The Indigenous Peoples Trail is made up of more than twenty villages. As an accident or illness requires them to seek medical help, our ambulance brings them to the regional health post which is staffed only by a full time nurse.If necessary, she will send them via ambulance to Kathmandu hospitals.
Due to the extremely poor conditions of roads, many still only stone and dirt, others filled with potholes, the life of an ambulance is but a few years. We have already have retired our first after many repairs; our second is just now at that point. But as two are a necessity, we are bandaging it together until we can replace it. As of autumn of 2022, the main fundraising goal of Christopher’s Fund is to purchase its replacement. Best deals are for a completely refurbished one for approximately $20,000.00. Please consder contributing to Christopher’s Fund.
