Trek With Us
Join a Great Team of People Making a Great Difference
From time to time, we also organize special treks focusing on particular medical needs. This primarily includes dental and ophthalmology treatment, but specialists in other areas are welcome!
Join us for an unforgettable experience.
Med trek is a unique way to take in the beauty of Nepal, participate in the daily life of the Nepalese, immerse oneself in indigenous culture, and help people who otherwise go without health care. We first begin in Kathmandu, at the Bhuvaneshwori Satyal Foundation (BSF) contact center where we provide health and dental care for underserved neighborhood children. Then we travel by bus to the remote village of Lisankhu where we organize with the locals to provide a week of services to not only those living in Lisankhu but approximately twenty neighboring villages. People will trek on foot for several days to attend.Typically we see at least 1000 patients. In addition to diagnosing and treating acute problems, we also provide care for chronic conditions. In addition to being seen by a physician, patients see dentists, hearing specialists, and are given eyeglasses and necessary medicines. This requires not only professional but also nonprofessional who serve vital roles in registration, pharmacy and assisting the doctors. During the clinic in Lisankhu we stay in a tent camp with our own cook and his crew. After a long day of work, we kick back and enjoy each other’s company. Lasting friendships are made.
