For the last 18 years the HMF's network of clinics has offered free medical care to the monastic and lay communities in the Kathmandu valley, a region rich in spiritual history and heritage as well as unparalleled beauty. As the valley has become more modernized, severe air pollution, food and water contamination as well as a plethora of Public Health problems have emerged. In a country where the per capita income is roughly 500 rupees a week (6 USD), many Nepalis and Tibetans have few options for any type of meaningful medical care. Quite literally the treatment these patients receive at the HMF-sponsored free clinics can often be the dividing line between life and death.
