    Fail Forward
    By - Lee Weingrad - Project Leader
      East Tibet 2010. Our team was doing an emergency assessment of Yushu Prefecture township hospitals following the disastrous 2010 earthquake. The way was muddy and rutted. We had to get out of the Landcruiser often to push.  On the way to the Mauzhuang hospital, I saw a bunch of our Community Health Workers...

    Our Peak Season on the Plateau
    By - Lee Weingrad - Director, Surmang Foundation
    As our summer ended, our training season also came to a close. This year we’ve had a very successful training program. With the oversight of (tri-lingual) Project Manager Ojen Tsering, we were able to make a quantum leap in our work. This year, with the kind assistance of the Danish Chamber of Commerce, China,...

    Promises to Keep
    By - Lee - Director
    As the highland barley shoots start to greet the sun, when the snow melts off the hillsides, fields abound in fragrant wildflowers, the rivers are in spate, days are long, and the nomads and their yaks, goats and horses move to their highland pastures. Suddenly it’s June in East Tibet. It’s our active season and...

    Winter '13 and Early Spring '14
    By - Lee Weingrad - Director
    The winter months are quiet ones for our programs but not for our clinic projects nor the Khampa Tibetan patients. In October, the snows come down to about 3500m, the nomads fold up their sturdy yak hair tents, and with their herds of yak, horses and goats go to the lower elevations, to their villages and permanent homes....

    Putting Mothers and Children in First Place
    By - Lee Weingrad - Director Surmang Foundation
    We stand for healthy families. But how can you have a healthy family and a healthy culture when the mothers and children are dying in record numbers? Yes, it’s true that Tibetans and other minorities in China live in very low population density. But there are over 40 million of them in China –including Uighurs,...

    Rolling Out the Surmang Model in East Tibet
    By - Elizabeth Van Dyne, MD - Volunteer, Surmang Foundation
    What can be further from my world in sea level S. California, than to go to the Tibetan Plateau to work with Surmang Foundation? I was there in June to help advance the rollout, the prototyping of their rural health model, a model that seeks to bring sustainable quality care to 4 impoverished townships in Yushu Prefecture,...

    2012 - 2013 next steps for the Surmang Model
    By - Lee Weingrad - Director Surmang Foundation
    When the heads of foreign foundations that support orphanages talk with me here in Beijing, I ask them: “Why are there so many orphanages in Tibetan regions?”  It’s because the mothers are dying in pregnancy or childbirth in record numbers.  “Why not work further upstream?”  When...

    Field Visit
    By - Christal Chow - Assoc. Proj. Director, Surmang Foundation
     Beijing to Yushu On paper, the flight to Xining is an easy and straight shot westward from Beijing. Surrounded by a cocktail of unfamiliar sights and unknown languages, the 5-hour wait in Xining airport was an eye-opener and gave me a sense that I’d left East Asia behind. I was now in Central Asia.  Even...

    Health and Life for Yushu's Mothers and Children
    By - Lee Weingrad - Director, Surmang Foundation
    Last year we reduced infant and maternal mortality to zero in a region that has some of the highest in the world. For our foundation, we believe that when you have something that works –share it. That was the inspiration behind our post-earthquake government partnership.  We want to expand our network of...

    Overview of 2011
    By - Lee Weingrad - Director, Surmang Foundation
    Overview. It is very difficult to communicate the kinds of geographic (think 13,800 ft, bad roads), language and cultural challenges that we work with.  Even the advent of air transport in Yushu doesn’t mitigate that fact.  When I left Surmang in late September, it was 8:30 in the morning.  When I...

    Surmang Rural Health Festival
    By - Lee Weingrad - Director, Surmang Foundation
    Just like that, there was no transition from sea-level Beijing to 14,000’ Surmang. Copious juniper smoke billowed dayglo white and moved in all directions in Tibet’s clear azure sky. Children and dogs were running around. On the stage, with her hand to her ear, her song quickly jumped four octaves and pierced...

    Rolling out the Surmang Public Health Model to the Public Sector
    By - Lee Weingrad - Director, Surmang Foundation
    Today the top three killers in most poor countries are maternal death around childbirth and pediatric respiratory and intestinal infections leading to death in pulmonary failure or uncontrolled diarrhea. But few woman's rights groups put safe pregancy near the top of their priorities and there is no dysentery lobby or...
