Outreach programs that focus on under-served people in urban and isolated areas are the most effective method for improving general health.
Shechen Clinic in Nepal provides various outreach programs, including home-based palliative care, health education programs conducted throughout the local community, regular medical and dental camps, and health education programs offered in schools, factories, and monasteries.
In Tibet, Karuna-Shechen addresses the needs of destitute people who face serious health problems, and has provided life-saving surgeries and travel expenses to medical facilities. When possible, volunteer foreign doctors go to outlying areas to train local physicians and treat patients. We have helped provide annual winter relief to the victims of the earthquake in Yushu. Our team has traveled thousands of miles to teach safe birthing practices in remote areas of eastern Tibet through our Save the Mother and Child Program.
In India, our programs reach 9,000 people in twelve isolated villages by providing social services, medical care, safe drinking water, and solar electricity. Within the town of Bodhgaya, we conduct monthly medical camps for the Dalit people.
