Our Projects

  • Compassion Clinic

    Compassion Health Centre

    Tsum is a remote Himalayan valley in Nepal with no road access. It takes 7 days to walk in. Its extreme isolation has meant that too many of its Indigenous residents die from treatable issues and suffer without medical care.

    With your help, The Compassion Project is changing that. We currently staff and operate a health centre in Lamagaun Village (3,700 m) where we:

    • Provide free healthcare
    • Staff a qualified health worker
    • Stock the centre with supplies
    • Support maternal and infant care

    We are 100% volunteer run. Most of our team are Tsum-born volunteers who know the deep cultural and social roots of the valley.

    Looking to volunteer? If you are a healthcare professional and are interested in visiting Tsum, please email us at compassionfortsum@gmail.com.

  • Education

    Teachers

    Future
    As we grow, we have a vision of sending trained teachers into Tsum to existing schools to provide additional educational opportunities. Many children have had to leave Tsum because of a lack of quality education, including two of our volunteers themselves--Lopsang Chhiring Lama and Dhawa Tashi. We hope to use education to keep the Indigenous language, Tibetan, alive in the valley and to enhance learning opportunities.
