The mission of this essential program is to simply provide medical care to those in need in Nepal. Facing a multitude of health issues, the people of Nepal are suffering. Volunteer placements on this program are based at health posts or hospitals, and are either Government-run or managed by the local community, in rural and urban areas. Volunteers will be working in the cities of Kathmandu and Pokhara, as well as other rural locations within Nepal.
