Just a quick note. this week I was contacted by the leaders of a group bringing medical students to Nepal. (not their first time).
I was happy to help them – providing links to my YouTube channel etc – but also to help them make contacts from among my list.
If any other group or individual makes a query, my policy is to help in any way I can.
feel free to contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you trekking?
Many doctors or nurses come to Nepal to do one of the classic treks – long distance hikes with a guide and porters. They wonder how to make use of their health care background. My advice? If this is your first time to Nepal it’s hard to find a role. Spend time reaching out and learning. The hospitality of Nepali people is legendary. Ask them to show you their health post or hospital and tell you what they do.
Tip: before you leave home, slip one used medical or nursing textbook in your luggage. Find a school of nursing or a hospital and donate it to their library. This is a more lasting way to make a difference than, say, handing out toothbrushes.
