Health

Karuna-Shechen provides medical services and health education to individuals and families through clinics, and mobile outreach programs. The people we serve live in remote nomad regions of Eastern Tibet, the outskirts and slums of Kathmandu, and in rural villages in India and Nepal. All of them belong to communities in great need of services.

“If humanitarian organizations developed more preventative health initiatives, there would be 30% less disease.” (WHO)
