Hello Compassion Project friends,
I just received some new photos from our health centre in Tsum from team member Dhawa Tashi. Warning: the second image may be upsetting to some. Simply don't scroll to the bottom if you prefer.
These images show exactly why we work so hard to provide care. One man was carried in by stretcher with a hurt leg; the other injury is from a yak horn. Dinesh, our health worker, is able to do minor surgeries so people don't need to hike to Kathmandu for hospital care. Imagine hiking with either of these injuries?
These services are made possible by YOU! None of the money is lost in bureaucracy or inflated salaries. It goes 100% to operational costs, Dinesh's salary, and buying medicine. It's because we are working at the local level that we can achieve this. We ask the surrounding communities and villagers: What can we do better? Are these services helpful? What do you need, and how can we serve? The response has been overwhelmingly positive. So let's keep going. Together.
