Necha Community Hospital (NCH) on the foothills of Mt. Everest operating its health services to improve the health status of isolated rural community families by providing basic health services with 24 hours emergency and raising awareness of health issues. You will spend two weeks in this 15-bed hospital on a healthcare volunteering program with one resident doctor and several staff members. The primary duty of volunteers is to do basic nursing chores and assist the doctor with daily duties and also experience the shamans and orthodox behavior in society that still exist in rural Nepal. In addition to volunteers, we are seeking supporters and contributors to complete ward building of NCH (phase II) in the Necha Village. We launched this program with coordination with NCH in Necha Solukhumbhu which was established in 2008 with CSR of our Company through AHF Nepal, a Non-Government Organization. At the moment this hospital covers 18 villages serving more than 60,000 underprivileged people. Since 2016 hospital is running in its own building with the doctor and medical staffs providing the following services. Ultrasound and X-ray service. Minor operation/24 hour emergencies. Pharmacy/Laboratory. Anti-natal care and deliveries. In/Outpatient services. Nurses, doctors, or any type of medic who wants to experience daily hands-on in a rural hospital will find this program a truly rewarding experience.
