Comprehensive Planning Completed for 9 Schools: January-April 2017

April 14, 2017 - 

The district of Sindhupalchok, Nepal was one of the areas hit hardest by the April 2015 earthquake: more than 2,000 people died, many were injured, and the vast majority of houses, schools, and medical facilities were destroyed or rendered uninhabitable. In Bhotenamlang, the hometown of Maya Gurung (one of the founders of Seven Summits Women), there was not 1 house left intact. Sindhupalchok district was already known for sex-trafficking, lack of education, and discrimination against women, and the earthquake’s destruction meant that these problems would only grow worse.

RMF’s Presence

Soon after the earthquake, Real Medicine Foundation...

Free Treatment for an Average of 450 Patients Each Month- March 2017

March 21, 2017 - 

A year has passed since Real Medicine Foundation (RMF) started operating a health clinic in Arupokhari, Gorkha. During this time period, the clinic has treated many patients with different health problems. What began as a small initiative with a small budget and a steadfast commitment from RMF and the local community has grown into a lifesaving, easily accessible, much-needed health solution for the community.

Before RMF operated the clinic, the nearest health post was about 4–5 hours away, and any health facilities were few and far between. Now through RMF’s initiative, the people of Arupokhari and...

Construction Plan for New Classrooms Approved: February 2017

February 15, 2017 - 

Lumbini is not among the earthquake hit regions and is situated in western Nepal. The program was selected by RMF’s team because of its strong alignment with our motto, “Liberating Human Potential.” Although the region is only 205 km west of the capital city, Kathmandu, the treatment of women in Lumbini is astonishing. The region has the lowest female literacy rate in Nepal, at just 18%. This is a clear indication of gender bias and discouragement of women’s education and growth.

RMF has joined hands with Karuna Girls’ School, which provides education for girls from grades 6–12, as...

Follow-Up and Distribution of Supplies: January 1 - December 20, 2016

December 20, 2016 - 

A preliminary assessment of Kavre district and its need for health services was performed by RMF’s Nepal team immediately after the April 25, 2015 mega earthquake. We found that the health centers were in immediate need of health equipment and supplies, which would enable them to provide quality health services to area residents. RMF’s headquarters in the USA immediately responded to these needs by dispatching a 40-foot container filled with necessary health equipment and supplies.

However, the container could not reach Nepal at that time due to an unofficial economic blockade created by the Indian government. Nepal is a...
