Welcome to the Himalayan Health Project

A dedicated humanitarian healthcare initiative serving the Himalayan region. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our clinic in Ladakh faced significant challenges as the virus swept through the vulnerable population. Our team swiftly adapted, transitioning from dental and vision care to emergency sanitation protocols and primary emergency care. Led by our nurse, Ms Yangchan Dolma, we worked tirelessly to evacuate and quarantine students and staff, addressing unprecedented logistical and medical hurdles.

In 2022, we successfully resumed our dental services, maintaining strict sanitation measures and welcoming qualified volunteers who met our high standards of immunization and medical qualifications. Under the leadership of Dr Shahzeen, our clinic reached pre-pandemic levels of efficiency, benefitting from the collaboration of dedicated volunteer dentists.

Now, in 2023 and beyond, we are excited to extend our reach further. Our clinic reopened in April, offering humanitarian healthcare services until November. Additionally, we have completed a major Community Centre complex in Nepal's Langtang region, enabling us to conduct medical outreach camps for the local population. With operations on both the north and south sides of the Himalayas, we can provide vital healthcare services to the people of the Himalayas throughout the year.

Join us on this inspiring journey of healing and empowerment. Together, let's make a positive impact in the Himalayan communities.

Short documentaries of Himalayan Health Project expeditions

Please enjoy the following short documentaries that were filmed during several of our medical expeditions to some of the most remote areas of Ladakh. They really provide an insight into the remote and spectacular landscape of Ladakh as well as the opportunity for our international medical volunteers to bring urgently needed basic health care to the remarkable people living in this extraordinary region of India.

Never Give Up

No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart
Too much energy is spent developing the mind
instead of the heart
Be compassionate
Not just to your friends
but to everyone
Be compassionate
Work for peace
in your heart and in the world
Work for peace
and I say again
Never give up
No matter what is happening
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up

 HH Dalai Lama
