Mindful Medicine Worldwide has begun a new health clinic in Bhotechaur, Nepal. This project will supply the clinic with the supplies it needs to treat over 200 patients a week. Some patients travel 4 hours to receive treatments. Due to the high number of patients we are working to ensure that there are always enough supplies in stock.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In December, Mindful Medicine Worldwide expanded, sending practitioners to a new clinic in Bhotechaur, a rural farming village about 2 hours outside of Kathmandu. They are treating 30-40 patients a day, and arriving each morning to a line of 60+ hopeful patients. The clinic treats patients for a variety of healthcare needs, such as advanced COPD, typhoid fever, and paralysis. Because of the overwhelming positive response, clinic supplies are drastically needed to keep up with patient care.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project provides our clinicians with the supplies they need to maintain the healthcare of over 200 patients a week.
Potential Long Term Impact
MMW provides an education in Chinese Medicine to a local Nepalese students as a way of creating a sustainable form of healthcare within the community. Having the necessary supplies in the clinic helps to continue this mission, providing not only Bhotechaur, but many nearby villages with life-long, affordable community healthcare.
