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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
