Taksindu Medical Mission

Due to the wide success of the Oct 2015 medical mission, Doctors Gary Botstein, Michael Norman, Zeev Sharon accompanied by Dr. Andrew and Kim Ranucci will be leading another medical mission trip to Taksindu in October 15-27 2016. These doctors will assemble a team of support staff to attend to the needs of all of the villages in the Tasksindu vicinity, including Chhulemu. These doctors will be paying their own way but need the help of donations to support their staff and Sherpa guides as well as for medical supplies. Please consider making a tax deductible donation through the Himalayan Development Foundation to support the 2016 Taksindu Medical Mission.

 

Dr. Andrew and Kim Ranucci are seeking donations to support their medical mission by covering logistics and medical supply costs. If you would like support the efforts of Drs. Andrew and Kim Ranucci by making a tax deductible donation through HDF please click the link below.

 

HDF partnered with local medical providers who traveled to Taksindu Nepal during October 2015 to provide needed medical care to the affected region. HDF provided donation money to help support the medical support staff beyond what they could pay for themselves. The trip was led by Doctors Gary Botstein, Michael Norman, and Zeev Sharon
