"Join Tove’s birthday fundraising for Phuleli Medical Center”

Tove took part in Hvitserk’s (our norwegian partner) volunteer trip to Nepal in November 2018. She shared us that she was really impressed by all the work The Small World (TSW) has done, and still are doing for children, women and communities of the remote Himalayan areas of the Everest region. She got the idea of having a fundraising in connection with her upcoming birthday in December, for one of TSW’s projects in the remote parts of Solukhumbu. In cooperation with Karma Sherpa they decided that the medical center in Phuleli was a perfect aim.

She will share the idea with her friends on Facebook and encourage them to take part in the donation, but if you don’t know Tove, of course you still have the opportunity to support the project. Both TSW and Tove would really appreciate that! Don’t hesitate to push the donation button!

Problem / Challenges

In remote Himalayan communities of Solukhumbu district, we need to walk several hours to days to reach in hospital. The doctor to population ratio for the whole country is 1:1724. Like most developing nations, doctors are geographically mal- distributed in Nepal. The Kathmandu valley has one doctor for 850 people but in rural areas the number is one doctor for every 150000 people and besides numbers these there is many other barriers like poverty, tradition, complex geographic & lack of awareness.. There is an urgent need of health care center, medicines & education. In this remote areas. Hygiene education and encouraging women to use health services for deliveries and check-ups to save mother and child death.

Solution

The Small world has initiated to build free medical care center partnering with local community & international donors in Phuleli village on footprint of Classical Everest trekking trail to benefit the people of Taksindu , Jubing, Basa, many porters & foreigner walking on trail to Everest base camp.
